The Knight Campus Graduate Internship Program requires students to complete a paid 9-month full-time internship after they finish their coursework. The internship is a unique opportunity that provides our students with on-the-job training, allowing them to earn a paycheck while completing their master’s degree.
We partner with over 60 organizations spanning across numerous fields, sectors, and regions, providing diverse training opportunities for our students. Students have interned at Fortune 500 companies, startups, national labs, and research institutes. Many of our students accept full-time employment offers from their internship site, but the experience proves invaluable in the job search for all students.
We also work hand-in-hand with our partners to ensure the coursework portion of our curriculum is regularly adapted to meet the ever-evolving demands of the field. Students hit the ground running with the skills necessary to launch a successful career.
