What You Will Do In Your Role

As a global company spanning multiple industries, Koch Industries continues to transform the way we do business. In one of our many business roles, you will be right in the middle of finding new ways to move the world forward. Choosing the right place to start a successful accounting, analyst, or tax career is challenging. Koch Industries stands apart, providing a combination of diverse roles, abundant resources, personalized development, and a work/life balance that encourages less burnout and greater satisfaction.

Our interns work alongside experienced professionals to solve real problems and offer insights that benefit society through improving our products and services. In addition to being a contributor on their team, interns at Koch Companies explore our unique Principle-Based Management culture, partner with interns from other disciplines on case studies, learn key business concepts and Koch mental models, and engage with leaders to learn more about business transformation, our work in society, and more. These are just a few key aspects of our internship program.

The roles at Koch are rapidly transforming due to productivity optimization available through new technologies. While our interns perform day to day responsibilities, data analysis and business technology has become a key part of all our internship roles.
