IFSA - Summer Internships in India

Live and work in India as you complete a summer internship, building your relevant work experience and intercultural skills for your future. With India’s status as a global emerging market, Pune is the perfect place to explore work culture and norms. The thriving city is a unique combination of entrepreneurial and spiritual, and your opportunities to engage in the culture are endless.

Enhance your learning and develop marketable skills with an eight-week Summer Internship in India. You can start your internship in late May (Session 1) or late June (Session 2), whichever works best for your schedule. You can also combine study with an internship by enrolling in the four-week Summer in India (Session 1) followed by the eight-week Summer Internship in India (Session 2) program.
