Based on their individual interests, the Wallenberg International Fellows will be matched to internships at premier institutions and organizations related to business, finance, economics, policy, and government.
The internship is designed as an authentic international business experience, centered on a specific project, paper, or other corporate initiative. Given the background and distinction of the Wallenberg International Fellows, the international companies that participate will benefit greatly as well, gaining access to some of the most talented students in the world.
