The Value of Interning Abroad

Completing an international internship can give you the experience and confidence you need to pursue your chosen career after college. An international internship stands out on your resume, gives you an edge in a tough job market, and affords you a valuable global perspective. Interning abroad can also introduce you to different ways of working, giving you more flexibility and greater comfort with diverse points of view as you enter the workforce. Please visit the University of Houston Office of International Studies and Programs to learn about internships and study abroad programs for business students.
