Hospitality Internship Program

About the Hospitality Internship Program

For a career in Hospitality & Entertainment, MGM Resorts International® is the absolute authority, with 13 world-class resorts across the Las Vegas strip and more amazing destinations across the U.S. and around the world.

Our Hospitality Internship Program (HIP) offers 10 weeks of intensive career development with supplemental learning and collaboration with like-minded students and enterprise leaders. This is the perfect place for you to grow professionally. You will have the guidance and support of an appointed Advisor and Learning Coach as well as access to industry leaders throughout your experience.

During this exciting course you will also be introduced to our core values—Teamwork, Integrity, Excellence and Inclusion. This will set the stage for a future career with MGMRI.


Since the program’s inception in 1993, many interns have advanced their careers through full-time placement or participation in the Management Associate Program (MAP), a 12-month leadership development opportunity offered to recent college graduates. Upon successful completion, our development program has led many graduates to careers in management and executive roles within our Company.

As an intern, you will have the opportunity to network with MAP Alumni who will provide insight and guidance to help you navigate your career path.

The HIP curriculum includes:

  • Performance evaluations and learning plans specific to your chosen area of concentration.
  • “HIP to MAP workshop” – an information session designed to help navigate your future career path within MGMRI – in conjunction with a strategy session.
  • Participation in MGM Resorts International Corporate Social Responsibility in philanthropic events and diversity outreach.
  • Resort Knowledge Days (RKD), a learning series that includes resort tours and discussion panels with property executives who provide insight into strategic business goals at their respective properties.
