Business Coursework + Internship Programs (New York City)Summer Grads



We do not arrange for housing although we have several housing agencies that we can recommend or you may find your own accommodations with friends or family.  99% of the placements are NOT paid so you must carefully budget for living expenses during your internship period.  You may NOT work a part time job and be paid to help defray your expenses.  Most applicants arrive early before their placement begins and stay in a local hotel while they visit apartments/ shares to sort out where they will be living.  If your funds are limited, then we suggest staying for 2-3 months or for an appropriate time period that you can afford.  You will be allowed to arrive no more than two weeks prior to your start date and you will get a 30 day grace period during which you may remain in the United States for personal travel after the internship has officially finished.

If you want more than just an internship...we offer 5-week, 6-month and 1-year business courses at the Manhattan Institute of Management.  Intern in one of the most vibrant cities in the USA while working to earn a business certificate or an MBA.
