Minerva’s academics and experiential learning equip students to contribute meaningfully to leading organizations across disciplines. To complement focused internship searches, the Coaching and Talent Development teams engage with partner organizations around the world to identify opportunities for Minerva students.

Past internship experiences have included some of the best-known corporations, research institutions, and NGOs in sectors from technology and finance to science and social impact:

Sample Student Internships

Students are encouraged to pursue opportunities that align with their interests and capability levels. Some find work at the global nexus of their target industries, while others choose to apply their skills locally in their home regions. From consulting in Dakar for Dalberg to coding in San Francisco for Google, Minerva students provide high-value skills, while gaining valuable professional experience.

Employment with Minerva

Gain Valuable Work Experience at Minerva

Many Minerva students are eligible for work-study opportunities during the term. These part-time roles are allocated and assigned to students with financial need in order to provide sufficient income each semester to pay down student loans. The workload for these positions is intended to be manageable in conjunction with your academic work, while providing valuable contributions to the organization.

Additionally, all students are able to apply for internship roles at Minerva during the summer months. These positions are typically full-time, with more significant responsibilities and project work. Depending upon your interests, capabilities, and availability of roles, you may have the opportunity to join one of the dynamic teams in our San Francisco headquarters. Summer internships are an excellent way to build your résumé, while helping Minerva grow.

Applications for Fall 2023 are closed.

If you want to apply for Fall 2024 or a later term, you can begin part 1 now.
