Mexico’s vibrant culture is a melting pot of influences that are ancient and modern as well as local and international. This dynamic and lively environment is an ideal location for interns who want to experience cultural immersion both in and out of the workplace and to feel connected to an international community of professionals in their field. Interns in Mexico have the opportunity to practice their Spanish in a real world setting while gaining hands-on work experience that will give them a competitive advantage in the work place.
Those looking to increase their knowledge of Latin American cultures will find this a beneficial program. While fully immersed in this culture, interns will also gain a valuable perspective of their career field.


Cuernavaca is known as the city of eternal spring, and it lives up to this reputation with its year-round temperate climate and its numerous parks, gardens, tree-lined streets, and ornate flower beds. The city boasts landmarks such as ancient Aztec ruins and the Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary, which is a masterpiece of Spanish colonial architecture. These sights speak to Cuernavaca’s storied history as a cultural center for the various groups who ruled it in past centuries. The influences left by these groups are felt today in the language, dress, food, art, music, and lifestyle of the city.

Do you want to earn academic credit for your international internship? Nearly half of World Endeavors participants earn credit while interning abroad. Many students are required to participate in an internship to fulfill a requirement for their degree program. World Endeavors works closely with students and their academic advisors to ensure that our program meets those requirements. If you don’t fall into that category there is another exciting option for you.
