This highly selective summer internship will give you a 360° view of life in a truly global and entrepreneurial organization. We are looking for top talent who want to dive head first into meaningful projects and connect with people across the globe. If you have an entrepreneurial and international mindset, thrive in a fast paced environment, are passionate about driving initiatives, this internship is for you.

The Role

Inspired by our flagship EF360 Global Management Trainee Program, the EF360 Summer Internship gives you an 8-10 week snapshot of a fast-paced and collaborative working environment. The role is yours to create, and no internship projects will be the same. We will select a few talented interns who will move to one of EF’s hubs for the summer to gain mentorship from a senior manager and be assigned a project tailor made for their unique skillset, passions and talents.

On top of working on meaningful projects, you will travel to Berlin, Germany, to attend and help out at EF's Global Leadership Summit where high school students work together to design and present their own solutions to global issues during a two-day leadership conference.

We guarantee your summer will be challenging and you’ll receive real responsibility while creating and implementing interesting projects together with international colleagues across the globe.
