New Zealand: Auckland

Spend eight weeks interning remotely for a company located in Auckland. Known as “the city of sails,” Auckland is the most populous city of New Zealand and offers interns a wide variety of placement industries.  Interns will get a flavor of this vibrant city while building their professional development through project-based internship projects.

Summer 2021: This program will be in a virtual format.

Interns will work remotely with a team based in Auckland and will have frequent engagement with their supervisor and working teams. Interns will also interact frequently with our internship provider, Global Academic Ventures.

During this summer experience, you will apply the theories and concepts you’ve learned in class to a professional international working environment, learning and practicing the customs, behaviors and norms of another culture.

The skills you develop on this internship will transform you as a leader and give you a distinct competitive advantage in the job market. Along with practicing fundamental workplace skills, you will prove that you can work in a diverse environment, adapt to change, be a flexible problem solver and integrate successfully into a diverse and cross-cultural team—all high-demand skills for today’s globally minded employers.

You will work remotely Monday through Friday for eight weeks at your placement company for 25-30 hours per week. Given this is a virtual internship program, your work schedule may vary depending on your project and team needs.

This program is run through Global Academic Ventures, a third-party provider.

Global Academic Ventures’ internship services include:

  • Placement in a professional virtual internship
  • Professional development coaching
  • Fully trained local staff provided to guide you through the placement process, manage internship logistics, and provide information/support as needed
