business, Finance, and Entrepreneurship internships
Available around the world

Whether you are an undergraduate or graduate student in business or finance–or even just looking to gain real-world experience while building your global business network– we offer business, finance, and entrepreneurship internship placements in all of our destinations. Our past interns have found our internship placements to be an invaluable way to start or improve their careers.

Internships have included developing feasibility studies and financial modeling for new businesses, conducting market research and creating and implementing marketing strategies, participating in knowledge management projects for a strategic consulting firm, helping local firms improve operations and logistics, assessing the portfolio-at-risk for micro-finance institutions and developing export strategies for local entrepreneurs.

Each one of our destinations is a business and finance hub for its geographic area and offers first-hand experience of some of the most dynamic markets in the world. This means we can facilitate a wide range of valuable internships in sectors including marketing, sales, management consulting, venture capital, finance, financial services, IT, telecommunications, and international imports and exports. 

Contact us today to discuss which opportunities best fit your background, skills, and interests.  If you’re flexible regarding destination, we can also discuss the differences and help you choose which city is best for you.

What our Interns say

I interned at a property management software startup in Barcelona where I learned the ins and outs of what it takes to build, market, and maintain a growing business. Our program coordinators were the best and all of this would not have been possible without them. Nightlife is insane and the abundancy of Catalan culture and tapas all around you is overwhelming. What more can I say... I peaked. Do this program.

Connect-123 found me an internship in the mutual fund of an Argentine investment firm located in the heart of the Buenos Aires banking district. Considering the volatility of the Argentine economy, it was an eye opening experience that forced me to stay on my toes and ensured that every day was a new challenge. I would not hesitate to recommend this program to any young professional or student that is interested in advancing their career in an international setting.
