VCU Brandcenter


Real clients. Real work.
A taste of the agency and client-side
world before graduating.

Each Spring the VCU Brandcenter receives hundreds of intern requests from agencies
and companies around the country, which are posted internally for our students. 

While internships are not required by the program, most Brandcenter students intern for
8-10 weeks during the summer between their first and second years.

These internships are almost always paid, but that's not the best part. The students get
assigned to real projects for real clients and often get their work produced.
