IBM Extreme Blue Internship


There are internships, and then there’s Extreme Blue.

Think of it as the opportunity to unleash your technical ingenuity and business acumen in the professional world – with the support, expertise and backing of one of the world’s leading technology companies.

Extreme Blue at IBM isn’t your average internship. It’s a race against time – with the 12-week timeline compelling you to prove your creativity, passion and knowledge to deliver some of the most innovative solutions to real business challenges.

Your task? Work in a team of your pears to develop an idea to address a real-world challenge confronting part of IBM’s business – and then turn that idea into a real product. When the 12 weeks are up, you’ll showcase it to our executives, business partner s and clients. Expectations will be high, and the results will be scrutinized closely. So, it’s not an easy ride – but we guarantee it’ll be an incredible experience.
