Global Experiences and Internships

A major part of the Wall Fellows Program curriculum is the classroom preparation for hands on experiences traveling to meet with leaders in global organizations overseas and here in the United States. Wall Fellows fully plan and design an international travel experience as a class project that must be approved by the Wall Fellows Executive Board in advance, including the research on the organizations and places they will be visiting, as well as the costs of the journey. Program participants then study many aspects of the cultures of countries that they will be visiting as a group during the summer between their junior and senior years in the program, including language, politics, and business customs, as well as monetary and transportation systems, in preparation for their business related trip. In addition, there is a student planned East Coast business trip during the last semester of the senior year to extend this knowledge to U.S. based multinational groups.

Internships

REQUIRED INTERNSHIPS AS PART OF THE WALL FELLOWS PROGRAM

The Wall Fellows Internship Program is one of the central parts of the Wall Fellows experience. From the outset, the program has sought to create internship opportunities that are highly mentored and push students to a new level of competence and socio-cultural sophistication. In addition to as many part time local internship experiences as possible, it is REQUIRED that all Wall Fellows spend at least one full semester away from campus working full time in an internship for a U.S. or foreign based business organization to broaden their scope of knowledge. Elective course credit may be granted through the student's individual college for this experience. A roster of a sample of organizations with whom Wall Fellows have interned is attached below.
