Virtual Internship Program

“You start off with these linear plans, but after an internship abroad you realize maybe there’s something more than finalizing everything you do in your life here in the U.S." - Dulles Hanula, FCRH '21.

Build your global professional network while staying close to home. Fordham University has partnered with CEA to provide virtual international internships.

Interning with a company based overseas will help you gain valuable resume experience, increase your global awareness, and set you up for success in a world where working remotely is becoming the new norm. Internships are available in countries around the world.
