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.

"At Fletcher, I had become very interested in the field of impact investing, but was uncertain what the day to day might look like. After gaining experience through my internship, I have much more fundamental understanding of the work the field involves, and I am more excited about pursuing it full time later in my career."
