Institute for International Business

You have discovered a boutique academic and internship program designed with the International business and/or communications student in mind, to help them to Study, Live, Work and Gain.

Where else can you get to an opportunity to live and study at our small state college, coupled with working a full time internship in New York City, the business capital of the world - all in one semester?

Our two part program allows you to do both! You spend the first eight (8) weeks on our beautiful, upstate New York campus studying public relations, business communications, and two (2) business courses that match your interests and current academic preparation.  After the academic portion is completed, you will move to New York City, where you will live and work in a full time internship. This experience will give you insights into your chosen career field, present invaluable networking opportunities, as well as give you international experience for your current resume.

Nestled between the historic Hudson River to the east and the majestic Shawangunk Mountains to the west, New Paltz provides some of the most breathtakingly beautiful countryside on the east coast.

The State University of New York at New Paltz is an exciting blend of tradition and vision. At its educational core is the ever-present belief in the importance of a liberal arts education. The town of New Paltz is a charming small college town, great for hiking and biking or just strolling along its many quiet tree-lined streets. Apple orchards, restaurants, retail shops and professional offices intermingle with historic stone houses built in the 17th and 18th centuries.



Our location is midway between the business and cultural center of New York City, and the political hub and capital of the state, Albany. New York City, an educational gold mine, is less than a two hour drive, and benefits business, political science, communications, international relations, and fine and performing arts students with voluminous offerings: the UN, network studios, national publications, Wall Street, Broadway, and numerous museums and galleries.
