Lehigh@NasdaqCenter Innovation Internship is a cutting-edge academic program that immerses students in part-time, real-world internships with startups. Students spend the semester working remotely on real projects with real impact while connecting with Silicon Valley leaders through a weekly class session. Lehigh@NasdaqCenter Innovation Internship (BUS-178) is a 3-credit course available to rising sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students across the university – any major can apply! The course and internship runs August 26 - December 6, 2024.

During this 15-week internship (August 26 - December 6, 2024), students gain practical experience by spending 10-15 hours per week interning with a startup, developing their entrepreneurial mindset and skills. Students selected into the program are paired with startups across various industries as they work alongside founders and business leaders on mission-critical projects. Interns add meaningful value and produce a number of resume-ready deliverables for the company.

The internship is facilitated through a 3-credit course, led by Lehigh@NasdaqCenter, that meets weekly on Fridays (via Zoom) from 1:35 pm - 4:15 pm ET. The weekly class session features Silicon Valley entrepreneurs and industry leaders. This enables students to put classroom knowledge into action in real-world business environments while expanding their skill sets and network.
