Dear Prof Cox,
 
I hope you are well.

For 2017, we will be offering spring, summer, fall and winter programs in 12 locations:
 
London, Paris, New York, Boston, Washington D.C., Miami, Chicago, Austin, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sydney & Hong Kong.
 
Visit pre-launch application form.
 
The soft launch is an opportunity for direct and indirect recipients of this notification to submit an application to any of our 2017 programs before their release to the wider student and recent graduate population next month.  
If you feel our programs would be of interest to your students, please share this email and invite them to apply via:
 
www.city-internships.com/apply/
 
In addition to news of our new program locations, I have included a few notable updates for the 2017 season at the foot of this email.
 
i. Three friends, One Enviable Summer. Sponsored summer 2017 places for a trio of friends.
ii. Academic partnerships. Affecting positive outcomes together.
iii. We’re growing. New locations, industries and programs.
 
As always, please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions.
 
Best wishes
Lewis

i. Three Friends, One Enviable Summer. Sponsored summer 2017 places for a trio of friends.
 
For our Q4 2016 scholarship contest, I am pleased to announce that we are offering three sponsored places for a trio of friends to join a program of their choosing together in summer 2017.
 
We’re inviting a trio of friends to team up and record a short video to win. At least two of the three must be current students. They may be studying at the same or different colleges.
 
Learn more here: www.city-internships.com/career-advice/ci-contest-three-friends-one-enviable-summer/
 
I will send notifications of our in-house and third-party sponsored scholarship contests at the start of each quarter.
 
ii. Academic partnerships. Affecting college outcomes together.
 
City Internships (CI) is an “accelerated learning” provider offering full-time immersive in-person courses that combine intensive classroom-based workshops and seminars, practical work experience-based training and a link to potential employers.
 
For colleges, our programs provide an avenue to help students, through experiential education, develop the practical skills and experience necessary to launch successful careers in today’s competitive and rapidly evolving employment landscape.
 
Our alumni are hired more quickly and earn more than their peers straight out of college – three times more quickly (2.5 versus 7.5 months) and 30% more ($36k versus $47k), in fact, compared with both the US and UK national graduate averages. 
 
Ignoring the qualitative benefits from experiencing two-months in a global city with a cohort of like-minded, high-potential early-in career students and graduates, the 30% earnings premium alone represents a trade of 8 weeks for 8 years. Eight weeks invested in a CI program helps a graduate yield a positive return on their investment in their post-secondary education eight years sooner.
  
Since founding in 2011, we have enjoyed a strong track-record working with educators to positively affect the outcomes of bright, ambitious students.
 
To learn about how your college, school, department or group can partner with City Internships, please contact our Academic Engagement Manager, Misha Goosheh: misha@city-internships.com.
 
iii. We’re growing. New locations, industries and programs. 
 
For 2017, we will be offering spring, summer, fall and winter programs in 12 locations:
 
London, Paris, New York, Boston, Washington D.C., Miami, Chicago, Austin, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sydney & Hong Kong.
 
With internship placements in 9 industries:
 
Banking & Financial Services,  Marketing, Advertising and PR,  Consulting and Professional Services,  Technology and Engineering,  Entertainment, Media and Journalism,  Law and Politics,  Art, Fashion & Design,  Charities, NFPs & NGOs,  Start-Ups & Entrepreneurship.
 
For 2017, we will be offering two core program types:
 
Global Explorer Program:
8-week immersive internship* + Career Navigator Series + Future Leaders Series + Group Events & Excursions.
 
Global Accelerator Program:
2-week intensive course** + 6-week high-impact internship* + Career Navigator Series + Future Leaders Series + Group Events & Excursions.
