Living and interning in Stockholm will be a hugely rewarding and memorable experience. With some of the world’s most recognized brands like Ikea, Ericsson, Volvo and more, the innovation and entrepreneurship that abounds in this dynamic country is like no other. Socially speaking, Stockholm is quite progressive and visually focused as a leader in fashion, music, interior design, and architecture.
Stockholm is a culturally rich city serving as the capital of Sweden and as one of the fastest growing cities in Europe. Home of the Nobel Prize, recently named the world’s smartest IT city, and known for its summer festivals and music scene, Stockholm is Europe ingenuity and culture at its finest. Its state-of-the-art Internet speeds, world-renowned transportation system, and environmentally friendly practices ensure an amazing experience for all. And get this: With 90% of Swedish citizens speaking fluent English, Stockholm has become a truly global city!
Furthermore, with a government goal of becoming one of the three most popular event cities in Europe, there will never be a lack of things to do or see. Join free summer festivals like Popaganda, Summer Solstice Festival, and Skateathon. In addition to professional workshops, included in your program is an all-inclusive day trip in Sweden and various networking and cultural events. Some may include a boat tour through the 100+ islands (archipelagos); a sunset safari in the wildness; a historical tour through the 400-year-old canals; and more!
The Global Education office has partnered with Global Experiences to provide Mason students an internship experience in Stockholm, Sweden. Unlike traditional study abroad programs focusing on one particular subject, internship programs include students from different majors, working and studying in the same location. The student’s internship placement within a company relative to their area of study defines their global work experience, and determines the internship course credit the student will receive. For example, a Stockholm internship program can include (but is not limited to) students majoring in business and economics, communications, marketing, accounting, and IT.
Interns in the Stockholm program will be staying in twin share rooms in centrally located student apartments. All apartments are furnished Swedish style with shared access to kitchen facilities.
You can expect Internet WiFi, a bed, cooking utensils, and a desk and chair. Students of the same gender will share a bedroom with each other. The design uniqueness known in Sweden can be seen in your housing: sharp and simple minimalist living style.
