Employers participating in this Internship Programme benefit in a wide variety of ways. Benefits include:
Our students are high achievers when they enter the school and competent motivated graduates when they leave. Our interns bring a new perspective, updated skills and innovative ideas to the workplace. In addition they bring the added value of a modern curriculum (along with their expertise in areas such as social media, IT and communication) to your organisation.
The Internship Programme provides your organisation with the opportunity to engage and give back to students and UCD. By participating in the Programme you can directly contribute to the future generations of business leaders. Engagement in relation to internships also increases the potential to develop linkages and collaborations in other areas.
Employers participating in the programme have recognised the high calibre of our students and increasingly consider internship opportunities as a fundamental part of their graduate recruitment strategy. An internship allows the employer to see how much potential a student has to offer, providing key insights into their skillset and work ethic. Many of our employers offer students graduate positions based on their internship experience.
