LA is home to a culture of “thinking big”. Global Interns will learn the economy is extremely diversified, with established industry clusters ranging from entertainment, technology and fashion, to financial services, consumer products and tourism.
Art-deco architecture and palm-trees, hip bars and restaurants, a growing public transportation network, and robust opportunities to network with interns and professionals across a wide range of industries – from global corporations to the world-famous studios of Hollywood – LA is a perfect city to experience American and international culture while completing a rewarding internship experience.
