SGXU: SparksGrove University

A real client, a real challenge, and the creation of a real solution.

The SGXU Internship Program provides paid, on-the-job experience to students in the categories of UX, Strategy, and Design. The program is located at our headquarters in Atlanta, GA and spans 8 weeks,  June – July 2017.

Interns are assigned a real client project, which they will own from start to finish. Interns will gain exposure to all departments and functions within Sparks Grove, including case studies, thought leadership and deep dives into the various departments and processes that support our work.

Applications are open to rising undergraduate seniors, recent graduates, and masters degree students. Housing is not provided.



SGXU gave me a very real client-facing experience. You don’t get an experience like this elsewhere: the ability to control a project and get unfiltered insight. It was inspiring and awesome to watch skill sets come together from different departments to tackle a problem.

Evan - Class of 2015

SGXU provides an intensive opportunity to learn by doing. You concept, create and present real solutions to real clients in 8 weeks.

Minsoo - Chief Creative Officer

SGXU was an amazing internship experience. It gives you exposure to the entire product lifecycle and allows you to utilize skills gained in class within a real-world business context. As a UX Designer, I learned the importance of bringing the client along for the journey of understanding user needs, and then bringing that understanding into design.

Ruta - Class of 2015

I learned a lot in terms of how to communicate my ideas better and present them in a way that made sense to an audience.

Intern - Class of 2016

I gained a lot of hands-on experience to practice design methods, including interview, research, ideation, and prototyping. Most importantly, we got to improve our design through first-hand client feedback which was invaluable.
