The internship programme is open to students on the Bachelor of Commerce and BSc Economics & Finance degree programmes. Students participating in the internship programme will have completed 2 years of study at UCD (Stage 1 & 2).
"After completing my first two years of my Economics and Finance degree at UCD I knew I had a great foundation in key business skills and I was very keen to put them into a real world setting. That's why I didn't hesitate for a minute to apply for Quinn's Internship programme. LinkedIn's 11 month internship was very different to the tradition internship given that we were the inaugural European interns. It was my first real corporate experience and I loved every minute of it I would 100% recommend the internship programme to any Quinn student, as it really allows you to fully enhance both your CV and your outlook".
"UCD provides students with the unique opportunity to intern at some of the most recognisable names in global commerce. Without a doubt, the ten months I spent with the Skype finance team was one of the most beneficial periods of learning and development I have undergone, one which I would highly recommend to anybody interested in expanding their knowledge, their network or their experience. Over the course of the internship, I was given the chance to work with various teams on a wide range of projects, which exposed me to many aspects of the business I had never seen before. The level of responsibility I was given also meant that I was able to lead several of my own initiatives. This end-to-end exposure enabled me to see what a career in other business areas would entail, which in turn created a much more in-depth understanding of how my role fits into an international company such as Skype.
The skills I developed have been invaluable back in college, with improved teamwork, leadership and time management abilities. The programme was hugely beneficial in bridging the gap between academic understanding and the work I’ll be doing in the future. Overall it has pushed me become more experienced, more focused, more skilled and generally more employable. I honestly cannot recommend this internship programme enough"
