International Internships

Internship Placements range from start-ups to global organizations across a spectrum of industry sectors. Non-degree students enrolled at other SUNY institutions are eligible to participate in SUNY Oneonta's international internship programs.

Students must participate in a SUNY-approved international internship in order to receive academic credit for it. Contact the Office of International Education to confirm that your international internship is SUNY-approved.

The active non-profits work alongside businesses and the government to tackle these issues, making Mumbai a vibrant place to experience both successes and challenges of the development sector.
