International Internships at Libra Group Available to MDC StudentsStudents from the College's Schools of Business, Engineering and Technology, and Culinary Institute are encouraged to apply

MDC has become the latest partner in the Libra Group’s international internship program. As an international business group that controls 30 subsidiaries operating across five continents, Libra promotes opportunity and education for young people through numerous outreach initiatives. In this latest development, the company now takes up to 100 interns per year, including students from MDC.

Five MDC students will start at Libra in one of its global locations in Jan. 2015 for the spring and summer semesters. Students will gain practical workplace experience and life skills that will lead to better employment prospects. In addition, the fixed-term and structured program brings interns in contact with professionals in the field, while receiving on-the-job training and coaching to develop confidence and core skills.

Students enrolled in the college’s School of Business, Culinary Institute, and School of Engineering and Technology are invited to apply, and must meet a series of requirements, including a 3.0 minimum GPA to qualify. Students have the opportunity to work in a number of major world cities including London, New York, Buenos Aires, Beijing, and Athens. Libra Group will also provide financial assistance towards the travel and living expenses of all students in the program.
