Student Story

Jasmine Walker
Marketing Intern
Barcelona, Spain

“I was the Marketing Intern for a basketball analytics company, but my responsibilities were not solely focused on marketing. Since I was a part of a start-up, where we had 5 total employees, I was tasked with a variety of projects and responsibilities. I did things from data entry, to graphic design, to creating email campaigns and cold calling. I had the opportunity to really see how the inner workings of a true start-up were done and how real business decisions were accounted for when running such a young company.

The tasks that I did benefited this company more than I could have imagined. I thought that some of the projects that I was working on were not so important, but what I discovered is that I helped and impacted this company in a big way.”

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.
