Internship League Table
US News and World Report carries a piece on a mildly interesting league table of the US universities which produce the most interns.
The table below highlights the 10 national universities with the highest percentage of 2009 graduates who worked as interns at some point during their studies.
University of Pennsylvania 2,831 graduates, 90% graduating with internship experience
Colorado School of Mines 620 graduates, 84%
American University 1,384 graduates 81%
Seton Hall University 1,017 graduates 76%
Duke University 1,625 graduates 75%
Fordham University 1,885 graduates 75%
University of Pittsburgh 3,856 graduates 72%
George Washington University 2,485 graduates 68%
Johns Hopkins University 1,487 graduates 66%
Florida Institute of Technology 449 graduates 65%
Presumably they can’t all have wealthy parents paying cash for the internships. I’m not sure that similar data exists in the UK but would be interesting to see the results. Suspect even those institutions with the most sandwich and professional courses wouldn’t get to these percentages.
