A List of 100 Recognizable Companies Where NYUAD Students Have Interned

Almost half of 2019 graduates had four or more internships during their studies

Internships these days aren’t about fetching coffee, they’re about fetching a future. Most NYU Abu Dhabi students will work at least one internship between freshman and senior year because the best place for university students to gain meaningful career experiences and polish their professional skills is the workplace.

NYUAD helps students find opportunities in their area of interest, whether at a bank, art museum, tech firm, or biology lab, prepare an application, and get ready for interviews. Internships can happen any time of year, anywhere in the world, and there’s a good chance the experience will lead to a job after graduation.

“I did two internships at Google,” says Yana Dmytrivna Chala, a computer science major from Ukraine. “I first got the first internship (in London, UK) after my sophomore year, and returned for a second internship in Stockholm.” Today, she is working full-time at Google in London.


At NYUAD, I got involved in the movement for female empowerment in computer science. I was aware that there were less women in sciences but it never really struck me that it was a problem.
