Internships Albania is a new initiative by a group of eight Albanian students which study abroad and want to attract their peers to take summer internships in Albania during summer. This initiative comes to resolve a big problem that countries in development face randomly, known as the “brain drain”. Students educated abroad in high-level universities and top schools seek for employment chances in the country they finish their studies and do not want to return to their homelands, in this case in Albania.
To change this course, a group of well educated Albanian students are putting their efforts on this and in a short time of their activity they account hundreds of applications from Albanian students who study outside of Albania and foreign students who want to take an internship in Albania as well.
Helping Albania Attract the Best and Brightest is their motto.
This voluntary initiative has been supported by the government given that many Ministries have offered space for new interns during summer months. Its founder and CEO is Emanuel Vila, student at University College London who has taken two internships in Albania, as an Auditor at Ernst & Young Albania and at the Bank of Albania, in Tirana capital.
