Internships & International Programs

The hospitality industry is clearly a global one. A successful manager or owner will likely speak more than one language and possess a keen cultural intelligence. At SHA, exposure to a variety of cultures will be a critical part of your education (you’ll already be living and studying with BU students from more than 140 countries).

Our degree program requires an international experience and one of the most popular avenues is BU Study Abroad, which fields programs in 75 countries spread across six continents. Many feature an internship component, placing students in a variety of hospitality businesses in places like London, Paris, Madrid, Sydney, Auckland, Dublin, Haifa, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. Hospitality students, however, are not limited to the internship locations—all study abroad programs from Quito, Ecuador, to Shanghai, China, are options for students.
