The Global Virtual Internship Program (VIP) is a completely virtual instruction that provides students with supervised experience in conducting client-orientated research and business strategy execution.

During the internship, students will work collectively to scope the problem and identify gaps for their client, analyze consumer trends and behaviors, and develop ideas to address the client’s needs. Students will produce interim reports throughout the internship to track progress and receive instructor feedback to develop their skill set throughout the program. 

Global Springboard

The Global Trade Springboard is a virtual showcase that pairs local ecommerce businesses with local community college students. It is designed to show what can be accomplished by students in a relatively short period of time with a few essential digital marketing skills.

Our colleges are perfectly suited to connect talented students to businesses in need. Our Global Virtual Internship Program program brings companies a team of virtual interns. Qualified students work in groups under the direction of our eCommerce expert, working on customized solutions to business problems, at low costs with high results.
