CI provides immersive experiential education programs for college students, recent graduates and early-stage career-changers.
The Global Explorer Program is our flagship. It is most popular with current students and recent graduates looking to explore and discover their career path.
In addition to an immersive internship, the program features an integral series of group-based seminars, workshops and activities. Our alumni often cite spending a summer in a global city with a cohort of like-minded, high-potential early in career professionals - and the lasting relationships forged - among the most significant benefits of the program.
Graduates of the program leave with the professional skills, experience and connections necessary to find and launch a rewarding career.
Global Explorer Program:
8-week immersive internship* + Career Navigator Series + Future Leaders Series + Group Events & Excursions.
* More than 65 per cent of our alumni get hired by their host company. Your internship may last more than 8 or 6-weeks if you and your host company wish.

London, Paris, New York, Boston, Washington D.C., Miami, Chicago, Austin, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sydney & Hong Kong.

Cultivate real-world skills and experience to enhance your employability with an eight-week, full-time internship. We’ll work with you to identify the best opportunity with a host company that matches your professional goals and cultural fit.
Career Navigator Series
In an ever-evolving economy and employment market, it’s critical to make every move count. The Career Navigator Series equips students with the knowledge and confidence to make smart, informed career decisions. The course starts with a Graduate Panel Q&A, includes an Acing the Interview workshop and finishes with an intern-supervisor Meet & Greet.
Future Leaders Series
Being a leader is a state of mind. The Future Leaders Series will train you to think and behave like a leader. Likened to a mini-MBA, this course comprises over 15 hours of contact time, we’ll see you for a workshop every Thursday and set you weekly exercises. Classes include Market & Company Analysis, Sales & Marketing Fundamentals and Money Matters.
Group Activities & Travel
Learn more about yourself and open your eyes through travel. We’ll host a series of networking evenings, a weekend retreat, a day trip and social Happy Hours on Thursdays that bring you and your cohort together. And when we’re not together, we’ll always encourage you to get out, travel, explore and discover new things as you see new parts of the world.
