Green Internships and Job Opportunities

(Updated monthly during the academic year)

Environmental skills and knowledge are increasingly valued in the employment market. In a recent survey, 65% of businesses said they value environmental and sustainability knowledge in job candidates, and 78% said this knowledge would grow in importance in the next five years.

Green internships are ideal for students to obtain hands-on experience and knowledge, develop their professional skills, and improve their ability to find an appropriate job after graduation. The “green internship” program is open to all students but is particularly suitable for students enrolled in the Clean Energy and Sustainability Programs, including the certificate and the MBA Environmental Management specialization. There is a range of green internships and jobs available at companies, government agencies, nonprofit organizations, and academic institutions.
