Overview

The Emory College Summer Global Internship Program provides students with a comprehensive academic, professional and cultural experience.  Each participant will be placed in an internship that corresponds with the student's course of study, to ensure the quality and academic relevance of the placement.

The Emory College Summer Global Internship Program enables students to:
  • Develop professional fluency in new linguistic, cultural, and/or professional contexts
  • Adapt to workplace practices in a global city
  • Connect with international experts in their disciplines
  • Create a lifelong and global network of peers and mentors
  • Meet personal, academic and career goals
  • Earn Emory credit (4 credits)
Hosted By: Emory College Office of International and Summer Programs (OISP) and EUSA

Location

 

Location

Dublin is the center of Irish industry, and has a very international, cosmopolitan workforce, so depending on the industry in which you are interning, the person at the next desk is as likely to be from County Tipperary or Latvia as they are from Dublin.  There are no thatched roof cottages in Dublin – it is a very much a city, and a modern one, at that. Do keep in mind, however, that Dublin is a small city.  This has great advantages for newcomers (both to Ireland and city life in general): it’s a bit easier to learn the lay of the land and the people are very warm and welcoming.  Dubliners see themselves as a breed apart from the rest of Ireland and would have a certain disdain for anything “culchie” (country) or “diddly-aye music” or “oirish” bric-a-brac trotted out to please tourists; the Dublin of real Dubliners is modern and outward looking and YOUNG – half the population is under the age of 30. You’ll find Dubliners are well-read, opinionated, and always ready for a joke. Experiencing Dublin with EUSA means activities like trips to a hurling match, sightseeing trips to Glendalough, learning a few words of the Irish language, or a trip to the famed Abbey Theatre.

Students will live in an apartment complex especially designed for student use. The fully furnished apartments consist of a shared kitchen, living area and bathroom, internet connections and on-site laundry facilities. Located approximately three miles from the Dublin city center, the student residence is well served by public transportation.

Academics

 

Academics

Students will enroll in one seminar course, which will be taught online during the internship placement (4 Emory credits).  The course will facilitate student learning and self-reflection about various types of organizational contexts, structures, and cultures and about the development of practical strategies for successful internship experiences.  The course will also present a range of theories, methods, and real-world examples for examining management and organizational practice. As with other Emory online courses, students will learn from both posted materials, including multimedia lectures and readings, as well as from online, live, group discussions where students from several sites will have the opportunity to discuss and compare all stages of the internship experience.  Students will reflect upon workplace culture and situate it among other organizational cultures. Students will also complete practical exercises, writing assignments, and projects, and will be guided through all stages of the internship experience.
