#ALUInternDiary: The Internship Experience

The founding class of ALU is finally back on campus after four months on internships across Africa and the world. The internship experience is part of the Undergraduate Experience at ALU where students spend eight months in the classroom and four months on internships with one of our Employer Partners. It is an opportunity for learners to take what they learn in the classroom and develop those skills in the real world.

The experience spanned far and wide with learners interning at companies like SwissRe and McKinsey and places like Shanghai, China and Silicon Valley, USA! After all has been said and done, here’s a recap of some of the top quotes from our students and employers about the internship experience. Enjoy!
