Milan Summer - Internship

Program Overview

Milan is the economic and financial hub of Italy, a fast-paced business and fashion-oriented city, and one of Europe’s most exciting locations. Our program guarantees an internship placement to help you develop professional skills that will jump-start your résumé and make you more attractive to employers in today’s competitive job market. IES Abroad’s unpaid, academic internships have placed Milan interns at a variety of companies while also showing them the sights and sounds of Italy.

Before you depart, we work with you to fine-tune your résumé, perfect your cover letter, hone your networking and interview skills, as well as prepare you for working in a new cultural environment. You'll be guaranteed a placement at a local business or organization, where you'll work for at least 25 hours a week. You will enroll in a required 1- or 6-credit academic internship seminar with other IES Abroad interns, where you’ll learn about a variety of local business settings and opportunities. An optional 3-credit language course is also offered, the placement for which is determined by an online predeparture language test.

Witness some of the world’s finest performers at Teatro alla Scala, the world-renowned opera house in Milan. Observe fashion executives to see how successful businesses are run. No matter what you choose, your Milanese experience with IES Abroad will come together to make the perfect symphony.
