What Tippie students are saying:

“Working with a start-up company based in Melbourne, Australia aimed at entering the U.S. Market by December of this year was an amazing experience.  Their product was an augmented reality mobile app.  Along with my team, I was able to establish relationships with our clients, identify their needs, perform primary and secondary research, and present our findings and recommendations.  It was a consolidated, intense 3 weeks of work and our clients expressed that our results exceeded their expectations.

This experience has taught me to be both patient and persistent when working with those from differing cultures and customs.  Style-flexing to clients doing business at a slightly slower pace and having more meaningful dialogue in our remote meetings to replace the relationship building that would have been done in person pre-COVID, helped to establish trust.  I most enjoyed designing a consumer survey to collect data on target consumer groups and interviewing experts for advice on market entry strategies.  Compiling a 30-page business deck to walk our client through our findings was rewarding.  Influencing a company’s trajectory made it one of the most relevant and applicable courses I’ve taken thus far.”

– Adam S.

 

“The course was the perfect combination of academics and hands-on marketing consultation work. The presentations were given by international business professionals from Australia, Hong Kong, and Singapore to name a few. They discussed traditional business customs in their cultures, specific marketing strategies, and how the business world has been changing from their perspective. I had the opportunity to connect with a guest speakers from Australia that discussed conversion rate optimization. He has offered to mentor me and share international opportunities with me, which was never something I thought I would find over zoom.

I was also given the chance to work as a marketing consultant for an online memorial tribute service. The company is based out of Australia, but has customers from all over the globe. I focused on improving the user experience features and visual accessibility of the website. Throughout the project I was finally able to apply my marketing coursework to real life work. I can see how valuable my coursework is as I now have the firsthand knowledge to apply the concepts I’m learning at Tippie.”

Global Virtual Internships Summer 2021

What is a Virtual Internship?

Call it what you will: Remote Internship, Virtual Internship, Online Internship, Tele-working, Telecommuting, it all means the same thing: you will be completing your international internship…directly from your own laptop!

Remote internships mean that you can work with companies across the globe to support a wide range of projects, from basic social media support to full business projects, website designs, market reports, financial assessments, usability testing code, and much much more.

Why do a virtual internship?

  • An internship looks great on your resume, especially with an international organization.
  • You can still work or take classes while completing an internship.
  • The cost of a virtual internship is almost a quarter of the cost of an on-site internship.
  • In-person internships both overseas and here in the US have been closed in most locations.
  • You can gain a 3, 4 or 6 credit internship credit that appears on your UI transcript.
  • You will gain valuable experiences working with an international company organization that you can talk about.

The University of Iowa has several partners for summer virtual global internships located around the world!  All of which are offered at a fraction of the cost of an on-site internship while still being open for scholarships and giving you the credit you need to fulfill experiential learning requirements.

Remote internships mean that you can work with companies across the globe to support projects in almost any major. Example range from social media support in London, website designs in Italy, working with NGO/nonprofits in Australia, exploring the environment, development and sustainability in India, finance or social entrepreneurship projects in Malaysia, to visual arts in Costa Rica, and much more. 

When completing a remote internship many of the same aspects of a traditional in-person internship still exist, including meetings with your supervisor or teammates, completing a mix of individual and group projects, and learning about the overall company or organization and the culture it works in.

Internships through our providers also mean you will have an in-depth exploration of your host country’s work culture, gain career coaching and develop a cohort of other students all working ‘in’ your same location.
