We mentor our interns and provide them with the resources and guidance needed for success, as well as the autonomy necessary for growth and empowerment.

Global Networking

Comprehensive and customized program

Your internship through Empiria will be enriching and fun.  We offer a full immersion experience. From basic Greek language classes and professional enrichment, to the internship and immersive trips, from the various cultural events to the comfortable housing, we meticulously plan your Empiria experience to maximize your professional and cultural growth during your time abroad.


A carefully crafted and thoroughly implemented internship can change your life. We get to know you and your interests.  We refer you to carefully selected internship sites with which you interview.  We make sure that all internship expectations and objectives are set forth in an Internship Work Agreement agreed upon by you and your supervisor in advance of your arrival to Greece or Cyprus. We offer constant support to work through any internship challenges or adjustments.


Empiria helps you to develop professionally both through your internship and through additional mentoring. We offer coaching sessions to help you advance your career skills.


In Empiria we are passionate about cultural immersion and exchange, and learning outside the classroom. We understand your needs and we have deep knowledge of the dynamics, particularities, and day-to-day workings in Greece and Cyprus.


Empiria in Greek means experience​

Our mission is to build bridges for you to cross into professional and cultural opportunities in Greece and Cyprus. We help interns gain work experience, improve their skills, and advance their career prospects.

We live in an increasingly interconnected and interdependent world.  We work hard to expose our interns to diverse cultures, mindsets, languages, and methods in order to increase empathy and effectiveness.

We provide customized and meaningful internship programs and immersive trips in Greece and Cyprus.  We further enrich the experience with engaging cultural activities, constant support, and more.

Our vision is to shape cosmopolitan citizens who bring an international perspective to their spheres of work.

Education is the kindling of a flame,
not the filling of a vessel
The light of Greece opened my eyes,
penetrated my pores,
expanded my whole being.
Henry Miller, American writer
The sea was sapphire coloured, and the sky burned
like a heated opal through the air;
We hoisted sail; the wind was blowing fair.
For the blue lands that to eastward lie.
Oscar Wilde, Writer
As you set out for Ithaka
hope your road is a long one,
full of adventure, full of knowledge.
Ithaca, Constantinos P. Cavafy
There is nothing permanent except change.
We are all Greeks. Our laws, our literature,
our religion, our arts have their root in Greece”
Percy Bysshe Shelley, English Poet
The feeling of being lost in time and geography with months and years hazily sparkling ahead in a prospect of inconjecturable magic
Patrick Leigh Fermor, English Writer
