Heinz College offers some of the most intelligent, enthusiastic and skilled interns in the public policy and information systems arenas. All two-year MSPPM, MAM, MEIM, HCPM, MSBTM and MISM students are required to complete summer internships for graduation.
A full-time internship, completed during the summer between the first and second years of the program, provides our students with the opportunity to apply the management and technical skills learned during the first year of the program, gain further professional experience and develop a strong context for the second-year concentration coursework.
Heinz College students are encouraged to intern in an organization that corresponds to their individual area of interest and career goals. This is reflected with the cadre of internships held over the past few years from different entities, including government agencies, private companies, international community development organizations, think tanks, consulting firms, and non-profit organizations.
