Sustainable internship program

Are you a JMSB Student? Are you interested in gaining experience in an internship? Want to expand your understanding of Sustainable Business?

The David O’Brien Centre for Sustainable Enterprise (DOCSE) and JMSB’s Career Management Services (CMS) have teamed up to offer you the Sustainable Internship Program (SIP). The program is to give undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to gain valuable and related hands-on experience within the domain of sustainable business.

Interested employers may find more information about the SIP at the program page for employers.

Internship applications are open to all students currently enrolled in the JMSB faculty as well as JMSB alumni within 1 year of convocation. Undergraduate intern applicants must have successfully completed a minimum of 24 credits (8 classes). Graduate intern applicants should have successfully completed a minimum of 12 credits (4 classes) or have related previous business experience.


Upon completion of an internship, interns will be required to write a short report or present about the internship experience and the knowledge gained in sustainability. Students will also receive a completion certificate once the internship and the report or presentation is completed.

*New internship positions are posted towards the beginning of every semester so check the CMS jobsite regularly and look for those that mention SIP.

Internships are normally available for one term: Fall (September to December), Winter (February- April) and Summer (May-August). Most part-time Internships run from 15-25 hours and full-time internships from 30-40 hours a week during the summer and/or throughout the year.

Deloitte Partners Sustainable Internship

The David O’Brien Centre for Sustainable Enterprise and Deloitte have created the Deloitte Partners Sustainable Internship Fund for The JMSB Sustainable Internship Program (SIP). If you are a JMSB student, you may be eligible for this funding after having been hired for a Sustainable Internship. This funding is intended to encourage and reward full-time undergraduate and graduate JMSB students interning with smaller businesses and organizations.

''I have been working alongside the Director of Communications and Corporate Social Responsibility, the Public relations advisor and Senior Marketing advisor at JACOB. Being a month into my stay at JACOB as the CSR/ Sustainability intern, I now have good insight as to what to expect on the job and am even more motivated to pursue my interests in Corporate/ Personal Social Responsibility. I fully appreciate the opportunity and would definitely suggest it to my peers!''

"Working with R4 and learning about true sustainability was a very rewarding summer internship. I found it provided a depth of involvement that was both a challenge I could overcome, and a work environment that was fun and comfortable to be in. I feel that this experience will be a great addition to my resume, as well as my professional career path."
