I got placed at an awesome advertising agency on a marketing role involved in a lot of brand, client, and product research. My internship placement worked out perfectly and Global experiences know what they're doing when they are matching you up to a company. They always make sure you are receiving everything you are looking for so that it turns into a memorable and growing experience.
Another plus was the events that they put on for the interns. We received a welcome party to meet all the interns, multiple day trips, and an exit orientation at the Shard. I chose Global Experiences to help me along; I definitely think London is amazing and my experience could not have gone any better!
Michigan State University - Marketing - London, England
One of the best experiences. This internship was seriously worth every penny. I could have not picked a better location. Dublin is an amazing city with such rich history as well as modern flair. If you are trying to decide the best location, look into Dublin you will not be sorry. The town is fun and safe. I never once felt uneasy or scared. Global Experiences matched me with my DREAM internship. I learned such vital information and skills that will put me above my competition in the real world. Global Experiences is a great program and I could not recommend it more.
Ole Miss - Hospitality - Dublin, Ireland
I aspire to work in the consulting field and getting on the job experience while crucial to securing a job, is not very easy to find. The staff at Global Experiences was incredibly honest with me during my application process. I was beyond ecstatic when I found out I had secured the position with the such an organization. The experience I gained through working with this company was irreplaceable; I feel much more confident going into my job search now. I have learned skills that will not only assist me in my professional career but also just help regarding living life in our ever increasingly globalized society.

Students looking to position themselves in the global workforce need to build intercultural communication skills and awareness and there is no better way than to participate in the Global Experiences Internship Program through Oswego.
Opportunities are available to students across all majors, and can be credit bearing.
During your semester abroad in Barcelona, you may participate in a part-time internship through Global Experiences. Language proficiency is not required and in non-English speaking locations language courses are part of the program. Students are matched individually to an internship approved by the Study Abroad office and relevant faculty.
Oswego students are also welcome to apply for internships in other locations outside of Barcelona in the semester and summer terms through our partnership with SUNY Potsdam. Read more about the Potsdam program here.
