Internship

Internship Description:

The MIM internship program (Academic Training for J-1 Visa Students) objective is to provide its students with the opportunity to apply the principles and theories that they have learned in the classroom to a professional environment. We view it as a learning experience that integrates academic knowledge with practical application in a real-life setting. We believe that Internships will help our students gain valuable experience, acquire critical skills, and make connections in professional fields in which they are considering future career paths.
