|Mountbatten Internship Programme|
The Mountbatten Institute (formerly known as the Mountbatten Internship Programme) is an organization based in New York and London dedicated to fostering work experience and cultural exchange by placing international graduate students abroad to earn postgraduate certificates and degrees. Named in honour of Louis Mountbatten, 1st Earl Mountbatten of Burma and benefacted by his eldest daughter Patricia, 2nd Countess Mountbatten, the organization was founded in 1984.
Originally focused on work experience and certificate, the Mountbatten Institute expanded in the late 2000s to offer some students an opportunity to earn a Master of Business Administration at an institution in their host country.
As a part of the program, participants interview and are selected for work placements through London and New York City. Placement areas include: finance, operations, accounting, human resources, marketing, and legal & compliance. Most of these placements are through top-tier investment banks and financial institutions.
There are several track options for the Mountbatten program, the Masters track and the Post Graduate Certificate track. Both programs include the year abroad with an additional three-month component for the MBA degree in Bangkok, Thailand.
