Our Students, Our Ambassadors: Their Internship Experiences

During the first four months of 2016, three hundred and nine 4th year Zamorano students will apply their knowledge, skills and values at universities, NGOs, agribusiness and agro industry companies in 26 countries as a part of the Zamorano Internship Program.  This  is a unique opportunity for our students to test and validate their Zamorano DNA by incorporating themselves into a new world of science, best practices, technologies and working cultures that not only will enrich their professional competencies  but will also enhance and expand Zamorano´ s excellent reputation worldwide. Many will start their senior year thesis projects and some will later continue graduate studies at the universities that host them.

Zamorano is grateful to all of our partners around the world for receiving and mentoring our students, and permitting them to be a part of their establishments during the internship program.   These significant on-the job, hands-on, real-world experiences enable the students to further mature, improve and excel in both their personal growth and their academic and professional lives.
