Placements are designed to integrate work experiences with academic courses and cultural and professional development opportunities. A key factor in the success of our programs is the quality and commitment of our internship partners—ranging from large, multinational corporations to small, entrepreneurial start-up organizations.

FLEXIBLE AND CREATIVE
We emphasize the need for adaptability and the reality of some routine work as a normal part of any internship.
AIC can consult with you to help you identify and scope a dedicated internship project that will add value to your organization. For larger projects, we can often assemble internship project teams from different academic disciplines in order to help you deploy a broader range of talent to address your organizational needs.
AIC also provides comprehensive program management through our local teams in each city including student counseling and 24-hour emergency support. A local AIC Site Director acts as a dedicated contact between AIC and the employer during the entire placement period, which allows for continuity for communication and feedback about the internship experience.
For additional information, please contact the appropriate Site Director.
