Summer internships are a critical building block in Fletcher’s professional development process that leads to full-time employment after graduation. Recent summers have found MIB students in professional internships across the globe, building on their first-year foundation courses.  Students secure internships in the public, private, and non-profit sectors and in a diverse array of industries including investment banking, private equity in emerging markets, political risk consulting, high tech, environmental sustainability, economic development, and microfinance.  About one-third of the internships typically take place in the emerging markets, including Brazil, Chile, China, India, Mexico, Thailand, and Turkey.

"I learned so much about how the UN works, including the atmosphere of the organization, the types of employees, how it deals with tasks, and how it collaborates with governments and other international organizations. It was a great experience to visit some local sites and see the reality for local employees. I saw why this work is worth doing but also why it is so challenging."
