What's included in the program?
Sage Corps is more than just an internship. Our semester study and intern abroad program includes:
1. PRE-DEPARTURE MODULES
Before you leave, you’ll complete an online curriculum designed to prepare you for a comprehensive professional and academic experience. The curriculum is personalized to each student, but may include course modules such as: professional networking, industry workshops (sales, analytics, marketing, design etc.), self-assessment, and cultural and academic preparations.
2. ON-SITE ORIENTATION
Upon arrival in your program city, you’ll attend a two-day Sage Corps Orientation designed to acquaint you with your new home and prepare you to make the most out of your internship. You will also attend a university specific orientation at your host institution.
3. TAKE CLASSES ABROAD
We will help enroll you in our partner host university where you will take between 3-5 classes across a wide range of subjects. You will study alongside both local students and other international students.
4. INTERNSHIP AT A GLOBAL STARTUP
Our team of expert careers professionals matches you to an internship with a local startup based on your skills, background, and goals. You will intern part-time alongside your classes for the semester. Startups cover all industries, such as education, sustainability, finance, retail, travel, and food, among others.
