Internship-Only Programs

Boston University Questrom School of Business and Newcastle University Business School have partnered to offer internships abroad, allowing participating students to:

  • Integrate with an internship site to learn about local culture and business practices
  • Access regions of the world rarely explored by Questrom students
  • Visit local companies to learn more about the economic climate of their host country
  • Complete an internship abroad without academic coursework or credit

While programs vary from year to year, Questrom students have had opportunities thus far to intern in Singapore, Israel, India, and England at sites including the Reserve Bank of India, the Self-Employed Women’s Association, and Kwang Sia.
