Develop Italian Talents in Cambodia

ICBA Virtual Internship Program

Build Cultural Bridges Between Italy and Cambodia for Talented Young Italian Professionals

What is it?

  • “Developing Italian Talens it Cambodia”  is the name of ICBA Internship Program. It aims  to offer to Italian university students, young graduates or young professionals opportunity to spend a period working in its premises in Cambodia.
  • Due COVID 19 travelling constraint, the Internship Programs from outside Cambodia have been suspended for the foreseeable future and replaced by Virtual Internship and Mentoring Programs, as a way to allow students to still undertake internships with the ICBA while based home in Italy.
  • In March 2020, a first pilot of the Virtual Internship and Mentoring Program has been launched in partnership with Ca’ Foscari University in Venice. Following its success, we are in the process of partnering more Italian universities and give more chances to Italian students to be engaged with ICBA from remote.
