“The connections you can make in Boston, as well as the opportunities in the surrounding areas here, are second to none in the media industry. Being at Curry, there are so many different ways to get your foot in the door early, at places like NESN, The Boston Globe and Gillette Stadium, home of the New England Patriots and Revolution.”

"Curry prepared me for my current position as a Central Buyer at Wayfair in many ways. My four internships prepared me more than I believe anyone or anything else could have. That real world, hands-on experience I gained two years before starting my first job right out of college made me more prepared, experienced, and ready to hit the ground running," says Christine Nguyen '15, Business Management.
"The experience, contacts, and overall knowledge I gained during my internship at Former Senator (John) Kerry's Office really helped to prepare me for post-graduation life." - Michael Griffin '12, Inbound Marketing Consultant at HubSpot in Cambridge, MA.
