Internship partnerships are a great investment for organizations or companies that may wish to form an ongoing and mutually beneficial relationship with the university. The most successful partnerships include unique internship experiences for students along with engagement in other areas, such as research, community development or service activities.

Partnerships are valuable to the student experience since they provide all the benefits of an internship, plus the added benefit of being part of a specialized program that allows employers to develop a pipeline of diverse, skilled, trained workers for their organization. Students involved in these partnerships value the participation, are more dedicated to their work and invested in the organization as a whole. Internships can be the main focus of the partnership or a part of a partnership that spans other areas of engagement with FIU. The Office of Engagement is available to discuss the many opportunities for internship partnerships.
