Internships  in Dublin

Internship Placements in Dublin, Ireland

Many have been inspired by Ireland’s captivating culture and lush greenery including James Joyce, Oscar Wilde, and George Bernard Shaw to name a few. Dublin is a unique mixture of both old and new with ancient castles alongside modern architecture, and colorful doorways on top of cobblestone streets. Once you experience the majesty of Dublin’s beauty, you will understand why so many artists, authors, and musicians have called it home.

Dublin is the European headquarters for many of the world’s largest technology corporations and is very supportive in fostering the growth of smaller companies. The city is a great bustling, business hub and is a dynamic place to share ideas, create new ventures, and grow existing businesses. This makes an international internship in Dublin an ideal location.  Though it may be brimming with Irish culture and history, Dublin is very much an international city bustling with people from all over the world and featuring multinational companies offering terrific opportunities in entrepreneurship, marketing, non-profits, and law. Dublin is a fantastic city for both first time travelers and seasoned veterans, and is within close proximity to the rest of Europe for your weekend travels.

 


Program Details

Global Experiences

The Global Education office has partnered with Global Experiences to provide Mason students an internship experience in Dublin, Ireland. 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 Dublin internship program can include (but is not limited to) students majoring in government and policy, global affairs, engineering, business and economics, communications, marketing, accounting, and tourism. 

Internships and Placement

The internship component involves students working five days a week for two months at non-profit or for-profit organization. Once accepted by the Global Education Office, students will work closely with a Global Experiences placement officer to identify areas of interest so as to secure an internship for their summer abroad. Students may inquire about the type of internship opportunities in their area of study as well as about the complete support services offered during the program to their Global Education Office Program Officer. Within your inquiry, please include your major, career goals, and what knowledge you wish to gain from the internship experience.
