Program Description:


  • VIRTUAL OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE! Contact us for more information
  • Gain professional experience
  • Work alongside international colleagues
  • Live for eight weeks in a different country


Gain first-hand knowledge and professional experience through global experiential opportunities. Learn and work alongside international colleagues in a variety of cultural settings, build your international network of friends, and prepare for today's rapidly changing global society. These eight-week, unpaid internships take place each year during the CU Denver downtown campus summer term.

Whether you wish to improve your resume, fulfill educational requirements, or accomplish life-long dreams, internships abroad are an essential component of a student's educational experience and represent a vital link to successful career preparation and personal development. As global market economies become increasingly interdependent, employers are looking to hire new employees who have international experience and who understand multi-cultural environments.

Singapore, known as the Paris of Southeast Asia and recognized as the one of the most powerful modern trading and financial hubs in Asia, is a jewel of multicultural contrasts where English, Tamil, Chinese and Malay are spoken. Singapore's clean and manicured-like tropical city, superb transportation system, excellent cuisine, modern commercial shopping centers, and colorful cultures make it a popular destination for everyone.
