Drake’s location in Des Moines, Iowa’s capital and largest city, means you will have many chances for professional experiences.
Des Moines is home to industry giants like the Principal Financial Group, Wells Fargo, Meredith Corporation, and Hy-Vee, as well as more than 60 insurance companies. In Des Moines, you’ll also find opportunities with numerous nonprofits, state and local government agencies, media outlets, and political campaigns during Iowa’s first in the nation caucuses, and more.
Of course, our students also work outside of Des Moines, in places like Washington, D.C., New York City, and even internationally.
Access to these opportunities—coupled with exceptional preparation in the classroom and guidance from the Professional and Career Development Services staff—is just one of the reasons the majority of our students graduate having completed one or more internships.
