Applications are now being accepted for the Mountbatten Institute’s August 2012 Intake to New York.

The Mountbatten experience really can have a dramatic impact on a young person’s professional career. This year’s report from the Association of Graduate Recruiters stressed the importance of international awareness and suggested that ‘immersion in a different culture can catapult a graduate into being considered for rewarding roles”.

Mountbatten interns are living proof of this: Nearly 20% interns go on to work with their sponsor companies when they return to their home country and those that don’t are in high demand from recruitment agencies and employers. Following 12 months in the world’s economic capital, Mountbatten interns are armed with transferable soft skills, cross-cultural awareness, confidence, ambition and professional maturity. The experience serves as a solid investment in any graduate’s career and long-term prospects. There is also an enhanced academic course which runs alongside the work placement and in March. This postgraduate qualification offers tangible evidence of a successful year working and studying abroad.

Any recent graduate or finalist student interested in international business is encouraged to consider the cultural exchange programme. 

The deadline for August 2012 applications is March 15th. Full eligibility requirements can be found on our website:
