Where will CIW lead you?

Washington, D.C. was recently ranked the number one best city for recent graduates by The Fiscal Times for its strong job market, and many opportunities in government as well as in business, science and the arts.   

The Cornell in Washington program offers you the unique opportunity to experience our nation’s capital region while:

  • Earning Cornell credits
  • Gaining work experience and developing transferable skills
  • Obtaining practical experience by applying methods and theories learned in classes
  • Networking with professionals in your field for references and future job opportunities
  • Increasing confidence in your abilities
