Great Networking Opportunities
An international MPS graduate explains how LIM College supports students in building their professional networks.
LIM College MPS students complete their final semester internship within a variety of areas related to the business of fashion throughout New York City.
A semester-long internship experience provides students with intensive hands-on experience at a company of their choice. Per the 3-credit internship guidelines, students spend a minimum of 21 hours per week interning in fields such as buying, public relations, supply chain, fashion publication and many others.
Students work with a faculty mentor to develop learning objectives and create a learning journal to illustrate progress towards the goals.
Career Exploration Internships
In addition to required internships, Career Exploration Internships are one-credit to increase students’ exposure to areas of the fashion, marketing and related industries that are relevant to their career goals and experience. Students are evaluated by their supervisor on meeting three job-related objectives and maintaining a learning journal to document progress towards achieving said objectives.
