Learning Opportunities Everywhere

The city is an educational Mecca, with 16 colleges and universities in the metropolitan area, not to mention a wealth of public, private, and parochial schools. Internship opportunities are practically legendary -- just ask the Belmont students who have interned at Sony, HCA (Healthcare), Nissan North America, Caterpillar Financial, Country Music Televsion (CMT), Gibson Guitar, and the Tennessee State Legislature.

A Great Place To Work

More than just music, Nashville is also home to a variety of business industries, including printing and publishing, health care management, insurance, tourism, banking, and advertising and media. Nashville is also Tennessee's state capitol and is a major urban, government, and not-for-profit center. With headquarters for both the Southern Baptist Convention and the United Methodist Church, the area also offers a wide range of church-related opportunities.
