The AIC Partnership
The Academic Internship Council (AIC) is a non-profit organization dedicated to partnering with colleges and universities to provide high-quality student internships that add value to their academic programs.
We share your mission of student growth and achievement—and we have nearly three decades of experience helping academic institutions achieve that mission.
What makes the AIC a valuable internship partner? Consider the following:
Expertise & Experience
Our management team has been designing and providing internship programs in Europe and North America since 1984. Through our work with more than 60 colleges and universities in the United States and internationally, we have developed a proven process, a robust local infrastructure, and expertise and insights that are unique in our field.
The AIC provides comprehensive internship programs that encompass cultural, academic, and professional development experiences, aligned with each partner’s goals. We cover all the details, enabling institutions to expand their reach and provide rich student internship opportunities, without having to add staff and resources.
We consult with universities on a strategic level to create programs that address their administrative concerns, not just student demand for internships. We are focused on creating value at every level for our university partner—from attracting early admissions or international students to balancing semesters or meeting other operational and institutional goals.
Our internship programs are academically directed, designed in collaboration with each university partner. We work to ensure the academic relevance and value of each student’s program through classroom or online components that complement the work placement.
Quality & Accountability
The AIC is committed to the highest standard of quality in everything we do. We pay careful attention to every detail to build an internship program that is consistent with each university’s philosophy and strategy while ensuring the program’s value, safety, and security for students.
In addition to these success factors, the AIC is easy to work with and flexible. We look forward to partnering with your institution to develop an internship program that helps students achieve personal growth and competitive advantage in the global workforce.
