Buenos Aires Internship Program

Buenos Aires Banner

*Non–US Passport Holders interested in the Buenos Aires Program must speak with the International Programs Office before submitting an application to discuss the visa process.


Internship programs will have a slightly different application and selection process.

After you submit your application, within three business days, you must email your current resume to Amy.Brinkerhoff@pepperdine.edu. If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by our office within five business days of receiving your resume and application to sign up for an interview time. If you are not selected, we will also send you an email to let you know that you are not being considered at this time. Submitting an application does not guarantee an interview.

In addition to the normal International Programs application criteria, your acceptance into an internship program will also take the following things into consideration:

  • Work and internship experience
  • Intercultural experience
  • Fit and availability of the internship placements

Internship Placement

Students will interview and work with the International Programs Coordinator of Internships and Academics, as well as the London program staff, to find an internship that fits with their area of study and interests.
