Boeing has opened its International Business Internship Programme (IBIP) to South African students in a business-related field. The IBIP, which was launched in 2012, provides students with exposure to the latest technological and business advances and thinking in a variety of disciplines relating to business operations, finance, marketing, strategy and the aviation industry.

Boeing internships open to SA studentsFull-time under-graduate and post-graduate students from South African universities and technical universities are encouraged to apply for the paid internship. During the six month programme, students will be exposed to a range of business activities and work alongside Boeing employees in various fields. They will also have an opportunity to spend time with Boeing leaders, visit several Boeing factories and share their experience with other IBIP interns from around the world.

Applicants must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate programme or have graduated within the last 12 months. Applicants that graduated in May 2016 or earlier will not be considered. Students must have excellent communications and interpersonal skills, be high achievers academically, and demonstrate leadership and team work skills.

“This is a great bridge to the world of working and a once in a lifetime opportunity to get real world exposure to a large multi-national corporation. The students will be provided with US-based work experience and will prove extremely valuable when they return and invest their new skills to the benefit of South Africa. Having Boeing on your resume could be a launching pad for your future career,” says J. Miguel Santos, Boeing Managing Director - Sub-Sahara Africa and Director of Commercial Airplane Sales for Africa.

Two South African students, both from Wits University, are already part of the first 2017 full-time programme, from January to July. Registration for the next intake period (January –July 2018) is open from 6 June to 15 July. Applications can be made through the career advice offices of the country’s universities, where Boeing will have provided information brochures.
