During the summer of 2023, undergrad and graduate students spent time learning from companies across the globe
Without classes to attend during the summer quarter, Daniels College of Business students got a first-hand look at the business world. In all, more than 200 undergraduate and graduate students used internships and experiential learning opportunities to get a taste of professional life.
“Students that engage in experiential learning opportunities such as internships, almost always gain a clearer understanding of the professional workplace and how their skills and interests fit,” said Bob Kumagai, executive director of Daniels Career Services. “Daniels students often have multiple internships during their time in school, and the post-graduation employment outcomes for them are always well above students that do not have that experience. Daniels works closely with businesses in the region and leverages our alumni to provide a wide range of internship opportunities that let students learn and experience being business professionals.”
This summer, Daniels students interned in 12 countries, on five different continents.
Students interned in countries on North America, South America, Europe, Asia and Africa. They worked with companies in Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ghana, India, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand, the United Arab Emirates and the United States.
Daniels students who interned domestically spent time in 28 states: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maine, Maryland, Minnesota, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Companies of every size and focus hosted Daniels students, including big names like: The Ritz Carlton, Ernst & Young, JPMorgan Chase, Lockheed Martin, Deloitte, The Curtis Hotel, KPMG, Haiku Sushi Bar, Kroenke Sports and Entertainment, United Airlines, PricewaterhouseCooper, Plante Moran, Kendra Scott, Nordstrom, Frontier Airlines, S&P Global and Santander Bank.
