Internships are an integral part of the Nicholas School educational experience and your professional development. Each summer, about 95% of our students engage in internships or summer research projects around the world, providing valuable opportunities to gain career-related experience and build a professional network.


There are many ways to build relationships with potential employers or engage in on-campus jobs and leadership opportunities during your time at the Nicholas School.

  • Career Treks: allows small groups of students to travel to companies and organizations to learn from practicing professionals and gain insights into potential careers.
  • Client-Based Courses & Master’s Projects: tackle real-world problems by serving as a student consultant through a client-based course or master’s project. 
  • Employer Engagement & Recruiting Events: meet employers face-to-face through networking events and career fairs held throughout the year.
  • DukeList (Duke NetID required): find on-campus job, leadership, or volunteer opportunities.


The vast majority of our graduates enter full-time, permanent positions that are closely related to their degree. Some opt to build on their educational experience with post-graduation fellowship opportunities or additional advanced degrees. See our graduates’ employment statistics and success stories .
