About City Internships

CI is an accelerated education provider. We partner with traditional educators and leading
companies to provide career- enhancing, life-affirming educational programs and experiences.

Our mission is to equip students with the critical skills, experience and confidence necessary to adeptly navigate the transition from education to employment; a critical period in one’s life where career decisions can have a profound and lasting impact.

Our flagship summer programs blend the benefits of academic rigor, study and travel abroad, and work experience; creating globally minded, career-ready graduates. Since 2011, CI alumni have markedly outperformed their peer groups. Immediately after college, CI alumni get hired 3x times more quickly and earn starting salaries 30% higher than their peers.

Our short courses and career coaching services make the benefits of our outcomes-focused syllabi and methodologies available to a broader audience; enabling students to isolate and leverage key elements of our award-winning programs to enhance their own career preparation and college outcomes.

20 Cities. 9 Industries.

The Global Accelerator Program is most popular with current students and recent graduates looking to explore and discover their career path.

Key Features:

  • An 8-week summer internship with a leading employer in your chosen location and industry.
  • Workshops, seminars, external speakers and networking events. Our weekly group sessions are everything school often isn't; they're dynamic, interactive and give you practical, modern skills, tools and mindsets that are proven to matter to prospective employers.
  • Group activities and travel. On a CI program, you'll be part of a cohort of ambitious, hardworking go-getters brought together in one of the world's great cities; we'll encourage you to have fun and to see, do and experience as much as you can together.

Graduates of the program leave with the professional skills, experience and connections necessary to find and launch a rewarding career.

On average, CI alumni are hired 3x more quickly and earn 30% more than their peers a year after completing university.

What we're looking for:

  • A good academic track record. You’re ambitious and working hard.
  • A passion for travel and learning. You want to join a CI program and see the world.
  • A foundation of hard and soft skills, well-rounded interests and evidence of personal excellence, drive and maturity.
