International Studies/International Business - Internships
The International Studies Program partners with the Dolan School of Business and the Career Planning Center to support the professional development of International Business majors. International Business is designed to prepare students for careers in multinational organizations, financial institutions, and other service industries, trading organizations, non-profit and government institutions.
Given the high number of nonprofit organizations and international businesses located in Fairfield County, coupled with the University's proximity to New York City, Fairfield can arrange internship opportunities with a significant international orientation. Recent placements include:
- Sikorksy Aircraft
- Kate Spade
- Fisher International
- Multicultural Marketing Resources
- Story Worldwide
- Tauck World Discovery
International Business majors are eligible to receive academic credit for their internships through the International Studies Program. For more information, contact Mr. Jermain Griffin, Associate Director of the International Studies Program. International Business majors are also encouraged to contact Ms. Tara Berwick, Director of Internships, to learn how the Dolan School's internship opportunities can help prepare you for your career.
All Fairfield students are encouraged to regularly visit the Career Planning Center for career-related resources. The Career Planning Center utilizes Stags4Hire to coordinate the campus recruiting process for internships and full-time jobs. All seniors, juniors and sophomores have an account but they must be activated by the student.
