City Internships | Fall 2017 Program Open

11 Jul

The admissions process for the Fall 2017 Global Vanguard Program is now open.

Interested students and recent graduates may apply via: www.city-internships.com/apply

The Global Vanguard Program, like our flagship Global Explorer Program, centers around an internship placement with a leading company. It is however a semester-length program, rather than an 8-week program, and is more closely focused on students acquiring permanent, post-program employment. The Vanguard program is therefore most popular with rising seniors and recent graduates.

Places are available in London, Paris, New York, Chicago, Boston, Washington D.C., Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego, Sydney and Hong Kong.

Those interested must apply by Friday, July 28th. Early application is advised; places are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
