Silicon Valley companies are as much about entrepreneurship as they are about technology, and individuals with a liberal arts education help to drive innovative cultures in this global hotspot. The mission of the Silicon Valley Program (SVP) is to provide students of the Claremont Colleges with an off-campus study alternative that marries the liberal arts to exciting challenges facing technology firms in Silicon Valley.
We have exciting news for our Fall 2020 semester of Claremont McKenna College’s Silicon Valley Program! Given the recent announcement from President Chodosh, the Silicon Valley Program will be operating fully remote this fall. Given the new remote possibilities, in addition to employers in the Bay Area, we have removed the geographic restriction so that our Academic Interns can find an exciting internship anywhere in the world. This opens a unique opportunity for those employers who have been interested in participating, but have been restricted due to location!
Our incoming Academic Interns have spent their summers expanding their networks and applying for a wide range of internships—covering marketing, finance, customer success, data science, business development, venture capital, software engineering, and other areas that feature opportunities in innovation and technology. A few have secured their internships, however, we still have a couple of students actively engaged in their searches. If you know of potential full-time opportunities for the fall, or would like to host one of them yourself, please reach out to us so that we can help facilitate.
