Jump-start your career in New York City

Training in an international business

The Mountbatten Program coordinates a full-time internship in leading organizations across New York City for all of our Trainees.

The placement will give you:

  • Hands-on experience
  • International exposure and perspective
  • The opportunity to develop your international brand
  • Skill development - technical, leadership, business and soft skills
  • Networking opportunities with senior global executives

Before the Mountbatten Program I was struggling to get interviews at top financial firms as a recent graduate with only a limited amount of experience. Being able to intern at my host organization and having their name on my CV has opened a lot of doors now that I am back living in the UK.

The placement process

If your application is successful you will be invited to an interview with our admissions and corporate relations teams. This interview will help us to find out a little bit more about you, your skills, experience and placement preferences.

Post-interview you will find out if you have been accepted into our candidate pool. By being accepted into the candidate pool your profile will be shared with relevant organizations, giving you an opportunity to interview for one of our internships.

If a host organization wishes to offer you a place on their team, then pack your bags because you are off to New York!
