Work internships abroad
Two-month to 18-month internships available through AIESEC (pronounced eye-sec), the acronym in French for the International Association of Students in Economics and Business Management (headquartered in Belgium; chapters in more than 100 countries and terriories; more than 50 in the U.S., including at SJSU)...AIESEC - SJSU
There are significant benefits to joining AIESEC even if not involved with an internship abroad. Each campus chapter operates like a small business managed by its student members. Its committees, projects, meetings and social and professional events offer opportunity to develop leadership, teamwork and communications skills and to network with local businesspersons, AIESEC alumni and visiting interns from other countries. Membership is not restricted to business majors.
