Program Description:


Together with AIFS Study Abroad, Virtuoso Institute supports the AIFS international course catalog + GE internship combinations. Students can enroll in courses from international universities and participate in the GE internship at the same time, for up to 15 credits if needed

This new model offers a wide array of virtual opportunities for students beginning this fall. As tough decisions are made to cancel or postpone Fall on-location programs, this option allows for students to have the best of both worlds. 
Virtuoso Institute model includes:
  • 6-credit guaranteed virtual internship with a host employer in the
    GE international network. 
  • Student’s choice of 2 to 3 additional virtual courses from a catalog of courses from internationally based AIFS partner institutions.
  • Transcripts from Fairfield University, and the international universities where students enroll in coursework.
  • Professional development programming.
  • Continued staff support throughout the experience.
  • Virtually hosted social & cultural activities.

With a GE Virtuoso Virtual Internship, you can put accessibility and mobility concerns aside and develop a meaningful professional connection with an international company. Here you will gain the skills necessary to thrive in today's economy, including digital literacy, cross-cultural communication, time management, and much more. Our virtual internship program allows you to gain the same benefits from working with an international company, and access to our career coaching and professional development program - plus extra benefits of it being affordable, flexible, and environmentally friendly.

Interns participating in GE Virtuoso: Virtual International Internships can expect the same level of support, guidance, and high-quality internships that define Global Experiences. Before you are matched with an employer, you will work one-on-one with your Program Advisor. They will help you with professional development, career advising, the Strengths assessment, and best-practices for a virtual internship.

Intern with companies in countries around the world from Europe, to Central America, to Oceania -- all from the comfort of your own home. Interns can expect to work with colleagues in different time zones, learn about a different job market, and adapt to cultural business practices.

If you want to develop intercultural work experience without having to travel abroad, consider participating in the Virtuoso Institute.
