Gain work experience and a postgraduate qualification in the world’s most exciting, cosmopolitan and colourful city!
The Mountbatten Institute is a leading cultural exchange organisation and for 25 years we have provided hundreds of graduates with life-changing opportunities in New York City!
Who are we?
The Mountbatten Institute began life as the Mountbatten Internship Programme, which was founded in New York, USA, in 1984. Its mission is:
“To foster international and cross cultural understanding through experiential education, practical training and residence abroad, and to provide opportunities for personal growth and professional development”
At the heart of the programme is a year's work placement in or near New York City with one of many American sponsor companies. We have established an impressive range of sponsors who provide our interns with a variety of practical training opportunities.
Here we hope you will learn some key skills and competencies - such as communications, team building, problem solving and decision making - that underpin any career path.
The companies we have links with (investment banks, charities, law firms, marketing agencies, event management companies and many more . . . ) require hard working, talented interns to begin work with them in September 2010. Roles are varied and will offer you the opportunity to gain valuable, professional work experience and develop soft skills in a demanding, international environment.
Alongside this full-time, PAID, work placement, Mountbatten interns enrol on a postgraduate academic course (providing 60 postgraduate credits) to compliment their professional, practical experience.
What we offer
For the duration of the 12-month postgraduate overseas programme, benefits include:
- Provision of apartment accommodation
- $1000 monthly living allowance
- Tuition for the Postgraduate Certificate in International Business Practice plus textbooks/reading material
- Structure and professional staff support
- Provision of medical insurance
