“I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my internship with Concordia – from the people to the work itself. The internship afforded me opportunities to engage first-hand with private and public sector leaders in a fast-paced, dynamic environment, which enhanced my ability to critically analyze the world’s most pressing issues through a broad, cross-sector lens. At the same time, the greatest part about Concordia is the people. Concordia is an extraordinary group of individuals who consistently maintain an atmosphere filled with strong enthusiasm for the work they pursue and a genuine will to help each other succeed.”
