[Back to Internships]

Description: Pearson is an international media company with world-leading businesses in education, business information and consumer publishing. We help children and adults to learn, business people to make good decisions, and readers to wise up or wind down with a good book. Our businesses fuel the growing demand for effective education and high-quality information in the global knowledge economy, and share a common goal: to help people get on in their lives through education.

With 37,000 employees based in more than 60 countries, we aim to serve the citizens of our brain-based economy wherever and whenever they are learning - old or young, at home or school or work, in any pursuit, anywhere.

Pearson is listed on the London and New York stock exchanges (UK: PSON; NYSE: PSO) and in 2009 we had sales of ?5,624m and operating profit of ?858m.

With the combining of the two premier lists in science 'Benjamin Cummings and Prentice Hall' publishing history was made in the summer of 2007. The resulting Pearson Science Division both retains and builds off of the rich traditions, cultures and imprints of Benjamin Cummings and Prentice Hall while entering into a new age of innovation and market leadership. Science education has never been more important in the United States and across the globe, and Pearson Science's goal is to partner with authors, professors and students to enrich and transform teaching and learning across all the sciences at this critical time. While our offices are in San Francisco, CA, Boston, MA and Upper Saddle River, NJ our mission is singular: to lead.
