What are you doing this summer?

Most SAIS MA candidates hold down internships between their first and second years, and the jobs can be all over the world.

This week I randomly asked 18 students at SAIS Europe where they will be working this summer and what they will be doing. Here are the answers:
  • Brussels, U.S. Chamber of Commerce
  • Washington, Scowcroft Group
  • Milan, German firm organizing fairs in Italy
  • Brussels, European People's Party
  • Washington, Homeland Security Customs and Border Protection
  • Ljubljana, Slovenian central bank
  • Quito, Inter-American Development Bank
  • Chennai, Boston Consulting Group
  • Brussels, GPlus Europe
  • Washington, Commerce Department
  • Prague, energy research for a consulting firm
  • Ghana, micro-finance project
  • Frankfurt, development bank internship
  • Hamburg, U.S. Consulate
  • Brussels, NATO (3 of the 18)
  • Bologna, research on Turkey for an energy consulting company
  • Washington, U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee
The Career Services Office and SAIS academic programs help students explore summer internship opportunities.

In this video, the students tell us what they will be up to.
