It is well-understood that internships represent unique opportunities for students to gain exposure to work settings while, at the same time, begin to apply concepts and theories from academic course work. There are two opportunities for W&L business majors to earn academic credit through University-sponsored internships.
- The Washington Term Program combines the practical experience of a political internship in Washington, D.C., with academic study. Offered during Spring Term, Washington Term is designed to enhance students' understanding of national politics and governance as it affords deeper insight into the processes and problems of government at the national level.
- The New York Program in International Finance and Commerce. The New York Program is an intense internship experience spanning the spring term and summer months. Past internships include internal auditing, investment banking, portfolio management, and tax research. Internship sponsors have included Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan, UBS, East River Development Alliance, Sands Capital, Marsh & McLennan, New York City Office of Tax Policy, and Tiger Management.
