Gabelli students have a massive advantage over students at other business schools when it comes to internships: They are in New York City.
Undergraduates who study business outside New York are able to hold internships with major multinational companies only once a year — when they can get away from campus in the summer to come to Manhattan. But Fordham students often graduate with four or five internships on their résumés. Even during their fall and spring semesters, world-class intern positions are only a 20-minute train ride away.
- More than 91 percent of Gabelli School of Business students have at least one internship during college.
- Last year, more than 75 percent of seniors who got job offers before graduation reported that an internship led directly to the full-time spot.
Where are these internships? At Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation. At KPMG, Ernst & Young and Deloitte. At MTV/Viacom and Lord & Taylor. Click here for a full list of companies where Gabelli students get internships and jobs.
Internships make all the difference.
- They let students test-drive careers, to make sure they’re on the right path when there is still time to change course.
- They provide the ultimate hands-on experience for a résumé.
- They help students make valuable connections that lead to permanent jobs.
- They are a primary reason why our students say, “When you graduate, you are not starting at square one.”
The staff of Gabelli's Personal and Professional Development Center helps students to identify internship possibilities, develop applications, stand out in screening interviews and obtain intern positions that will put them on the path to their desired careers.
