• External Partnerships give students the opportunity to solve urgent, real-world business and social challenges for corporate, nonprofit, and governmental organizations.

    Real Industry Experience

    Because Parsons students provide exceptional results, the External Partnerships program at Parsons attracts leading industry and community partners, including Chanel, JPMorgan Chase, and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. Partners benefit from students’ fresh ideas and design skills while students gain real-world experience made even more valuable by ongoing faculty mentorship.

    Transdisciplinary Collaboration

    Many projects require two or more design disciplines working in tandem, replicating the collaborative work environments students experience after graduation. These projects range from intensive three-day sessions and four-week competitions to in-depth multi-semester courses. To find out more about current and upcoming partnership projects, contact
