Top Internships 2020

This article is part of the ď2020 Ranking of MBA Development ProgramsĒ. At the time of this writing, our Development Program Directory has 241 internships, with this article focusing on the top ten!

The top three internships for this past year, in descending order, were AB InBev Global MBA Internship, Google MBA Intern and Johnson & Johnson International Recruitment and Development Program (IRDP) Internship. AB InBev maintained itís number one spot from last year's ranking, with Google and Johnson & Johnson moving up to second from fifth, and to third from fourth respectively.

It is interesting to note that, while AB InBev Global MBA Internship has maintained its top spot for the second year running, it is the only Top 10 internship this year based in the Consumer Goods industry. It also ranked as the second most popular program overall in this yearís ranking.

The vast majority of the popular internships this year are based in either the Technology or Healthcare industries, with the exception of American Express and Vanguard which are in the Financial Services industry. This seems to follow the trend of the popular full-time programs, where there is increasing interest in programs which require a background in technology or another professional industry such as medicine/healthcare.

Where the top internships differ from their full-time counterparts is in their area of focus. While most of the top full-time programs seem very focused in a specific area of business, the top internships are much broader in what they are aiming to offer, with titles such as MBA Internship or General Management. This makes sense, given candidates interested in internships are most likely looking to get their feet wet in the industry, and will have less experience than those pursuing a full-time program.
