Takumi Funada ’11 supported the sales teams for Japans Inc and Metoropolis in Tokyo. “Throughout the internship, I learned a lot about sales, advertising, media, and international business. They took me to sales meetings where I could see real conversations happen. The internship was so valuable that it was one of the best experiences of my life."
Vinisha Lal '11 places 2nd in intern competition with Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
My internship this summer was with Buckyball Records, in New York City. This was an exciting and eye-opening experience for me. The skills I learned and the nuances of business that I was able to pick up from my time in the office are invaluable. I strongly recommend students apply themselves in ways outside of the classroom and take initiative to learn from experience. The internship program at Wittenberg allowed me to earn course-credit while working on something I love. My summer working for Buckyball has helped to appreciate business as an art form and has inspired me reach for a bigger and brighter career.
