- Stephan Lins, CEO, Medialocate

Hire International Students
Leverage the language skills, market knowledge, and cross-cultural expertise of our students:
- Hire interns utilizing Curricular Practical Training (CPT) or Academic Training
- Diversify your workforce by hiring recent graduates using Optional Practical Training (OPT)
- Our MA in Translation and Localization Management, MA in International Environmental Policy, and MA in Nonproliferation and Terrorism Studies have all been designated as STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) degree programs. International students who graduate from any of these programs may qualify to apply for a STEM 24-month extension of their Optional Practical Training (OPT) work authorization. This is in addition to the standard 12-month OPT, resulting in 36 months of OPT work authorization.
- Consult an international student advisor to demystify the process
