The Modern College of Design offers various experiential learning opportunities that create value for your organization and Modern students. When participating in an Employer Partnership, each option offers unique benefits depending on your needs and goals.
Students often provide value to employers by participating in graphic design, web design, UI/UX, video, motion, illustration, photography, marketing, or social media projects. Your mentorship helps students learn to apply these skills in a professional work environment. All options can be paid or unpaid. Please see below for more details on each option.
