Think of it as the opportunity to unleash your technical ingenuity and business acumen in the professional world - with the support, expertise and backing of one of the world's leading technology companies. Extreme Blue at IBM isn’t your average internship. It’s a race against time - with the 12-week timeline compelling you to prove your creativity, passion and knowledge to deliver some of the most innovative solutions to real business challenges.

Your task? Work in a team of 4 to develop an idea to address a real-world challenge confronting part of IBM's business – and then turn that idea into a real product. When the 12 weeks are up, you’ll showcase it to our executives, business partners and clients. Expectations will be high and the results will be scrutinised closely. So, it’s not an easy ride – but we guarantee it’ll be an incredible experience.
