IT Academy Program

    The MassMutual IT Academy Program provides internships in areas that allow students to explore, develop and use their skills in technology roles at MassMutual. The program is designed to be an interactive, hands-on experience, offering students the resources to grow and develop while learning about a variety of careers – both technical and non-technical—that are needed for the digital world. We do this by providing:

    • Meaningful assignments in a variety of departments in IT
    • Professional development and networking opportunities with IT professionals across the company
    • Mentoring and career development sessions
    • Collaborative team projects with fellow interns

    High School Program

    The high school program is for students from 10th - 12th grade who are eager to explore and build their IT and professional skills. Experience in computer science or business is not required to enter the program, just a passion to learn!

    Students are assigned to work in areas that allow them to explore, develop and use their skills in information technology roles at the company. Students may be selected to continue their internships on a part-time basis during the school year.

    “The IT Academy greatly influenced my career path.  They gave me the opportunity to gain real world experience in a corporate environment early on, which in turn helped solidify my decisions regarding my college major and potential career paths I knew would interest me.  The IT Academy not only provides real work experience, but it also helps improve one’s communication, organization, time management, networking and leadership skills.  It's an awesome program that leaves a lasting impression on students, even if the corporate environment is not a place where they may see themselves pursuing a career.”
