At UM, your education extends beyond the classroom walls to labs, studios, hospitals, museums, internships- and even countries half way around the world. With access to a major metropolitan city, the real-world learning opportunities abound.
Location, location, location. 'Canes benefit from real-world experience in government, non-profit organizations, multinational corporations, and everything in between. Our students intern at U.S. Southern Command, Royal Caribbean, International Rescue Committee, and World Fuel Services, just to name a few. Not your thing? American Airlines, NBC Universal, Hilton International, Novartis Pharmaceuticals, and many more are also located in our own backyard.
Translate your academic experience into real-world problem solving skills and help build stronger connections between UM and the greater Miami community.
