Women Making History | Emily Merson of Global Experiences


For our next installment of our Women Making History series, we’re celebrating CEO of Global Experience, Emily Merson. Back in 2001, Merson co-founded Global Experience as a new kind of career hub. Her mission? To seamlessly connect students with international internships and career readiness programs. With a well-traveled staff who knows a thing or two about navigating study abroad programs and job opportunities, Global Experience has helped more than 8,000 students find their dream career match.

Merson’s platform links students to more than 4,000 employers around the world, allowing participants to gain real-world experience and resume-boosting skills. After nearly 20 years in business, Global Experience now offers award-winning internships in cities worldwide, like San Jose, Barcelona, Shanghai, Sydney, Stockholm, Florence, and London. Students can focus on a range of fields, including everything from accounting to fashion design. No matter the location or industry, participants are sure to get a fresh outlook on their career and life.
