The Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) is responsible for strategies that enhance Singapore’s position as a global center for business, innovation, and talent. Our mission is to create sustainable economic growth, with vibrant business and good job opportunities for Singapore.

In a fast-changing global environment, we are constantly seeking solutions to grow and transform Singapore’s industries. We seek answers to questions like these:

  • How can EDB identify opportunities and position Singapore accordingly to capture niche winning areas in the digital space?
  • How can Singapore’s electronics industry benefit from emerging trends and developing technologies in human-machine interfaces
  • How can we further innovate our education models to meet postgraduate talent needs of companies?

If you are energised at the prospect of coming up with possible solutions, we want you as an intern!

Every year, EDB welcomes a group of bright, driven and talented young individuals who share our vision and passion for Singapore’s economic future.

On EDB’s ten-week summer internship, to be held between May through to August 2018, you will join us in one of our divisions across industry development, new business and planning & policy.

You will be given full ownership of a project where you are empowered to dream and develop specific strategies and recommendations to address pertinent issues and forward-looking scenarios.

Check out the topics for the 2018 Internship Programme on our website.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Conduct industry and company research which will greatly enhance your knowledge of specific industry sectors/countries/specialisations;
  • Shadow our officers in meetings with external parties like multi-national companies, institutions and other government agencies, to glean first-hand knowledge of industry drivers and development trends;
  • Engage with and gain insights from EDB senior management in exclusive dialogue sessions;
  • Interact with your peers and like-minded individuals; and
  • Be immersed in our vibrant, nurturing and fun-loving culture!


EDB Internship is open to Singaporean undergraduates studying Engineering, Science, Economics, Business or other relevant disciplines in recognised local or overseas universities. You should be in your penultimate year of studies, or at least six months away from graduation at the point of internship.

If you are an undergraduate in your first or second year of studies, our Emerging Leaders Programme might be suitable for you!

Our application cycle for EDB Internship 2018 is open from 15 January – 11 March 2018.
As applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, please apply early.

We regret that only shortlisted candidates will be notified.
