Every year, EDB welcomes a group of bright, driven and talented young individuals who share our vision and passion for Singapore’s economic future. Find out what our ten-week summer internship, from May through to September, has in store for you.


About Internship

Our internship program is designed to provide you with valuable insight into industry development and policy implementation, while providing you with immense opportunities to gain exposure to cutting-edge industry trends, through shadowing meetings with external parties like multi-national companies, institutions and other government agencies. You will also be fully immersed in the strategies and culture of EDB, through exclusive insights sessions with EDB senior management, and mentorship by experienced team members. All the while, you will learn from your like-minded peers!

During the ten weeks, you will take full ownership over a real-life project in one of our job families – Industry Development, New Business, Planning & Policy or Corporate Development. You will be empowered to recommend specific strategies that not only address pertinent issues and forward-looking scenarios, but have the propensity to make a difference to Singapore and Singaporeans.
