The NYU School of Professional Studies Preston Robert Tisch Institute for Global Sport's extensive industry network in New York City and around the world offers access to internship experiences that cannot be found anywhere else. Internships build valuable, sector-specific learning into the undergraduate and graduate experience, and offer natural opportunities for classroom theory to meet real-world business application.

Internships are an integral component of Tisch Institute degree programs, providing students with the opportunity to build professional portfolios, to network, and to gain critical knowledge and hand-on skills within a professional environment.

Undergraduate Students

  • Required to complete a total of 600 hours of industry internships
  • May complete internships at two, three, or four organizations worldwide
  • Will learn, shadow, work, and develop professionally

Graduate Students

  • An optional 300-hour internship as an academic elective may be completed

The Tisch Institute allows flexibility in scheduling internships, which may occur in the fall, spring, or summer. Many students choose to intern while enrolled full-time, mirroring the multitasking required both in business and in life. Faculty members assign concurrent internship course work that complements students' practical field experience.
