Broad College of Business students travel the world every year on internships.

They gain valuable work experience and get an opportunity to make connections that can last a lifetime.

In order to highlight both our interns and the businesses where they are working, the Broad College asks our partners to gather images of our interns on location.

My favorite experience has been meeting new people with a passion to drive business, working on projects that have provided impact to the company, and seeing this impact implemented during my time.
