Student Story

Alexander Noriega (Financial Analyst Intern, London)

"I worked on tasks such as preparing and conducting financial research and modeling to Venture Capital outreach and client relationship management and even served as the American Representative for an Investment Platform my advisor started up.

A challenging aspect of this entire process was the ability to work with time differences as well as working in a virtual setting, however, coming out of this program I have gained so much insight into the ins and outs of the Private Equity sector and how important not only the numbers are but how important client relations and communication are.

This internship has significantly impacted my life and career goals by solidifying my dream of becoming a financial analyst! This opportunity ultimately led to a full-time offer as an Associate Financial Analyst at Dolby Laboratories post-graduation and I am so thankful for all I’ve learned these past 8 weeks. This internship has provided me with technical and non-technical skills that I would have never had otherwise, and I am truly thankful for the opportunity."

Academic Details

Students earn up to 12 quarter credits through 2 required courses for their 8-week full time internships: 

Course #1: GlobalWorks International Internship (up to 8 credits, upper division): This course helps students connect their academic studies to practical applications. Students develop professional skills while gaining exposure to the dynamic culture and lifestyle in their host country. The internship credits may be able to count toward department or major/minor requirement.

Course #2: Intercultural Communication (4 credits, lower division, online): This course is designed to provide ongoing support to students doing internships abroad. Students will observe, explore and investigate the core cultural values in their host country during the internship, conduct comparison in the differences between their host and home country, and develop critical thinking skills and culture learning strategies. A weekly assignment for the online course includes: reading assignments, group discussions and a weekly journal. 

Due to the intense nature of interning, we don't recommend students enroll for any other classes during the internship period.
