About Mattel Toys

If you’ve ever played with toys, you’re likely to be familiar with Mattel products. Mattel is one of the largest toy sellers in the world. Makers of Barbie, American Girl, Hot Wheels and Fisher Price, it trumps the toy competition. Founded in a garage in 1948 by Elliot and Ruth Handler and Harold Matson, Mattel now manufactures and sells its products around the globe.

Interns do project-based work. Mattel challenges them to use “teamwork, ingenuity and creativity” while handling the responsibilities of a full-time employee. MBA internships are generally available in marketing or finance. Undergraduate internships are available in design development and design engineering. Other departmental opportunities vary, but may include IT, legal, HR and corporate communications. Mattel also participates in INROADS.


Open to college students and first-year MBA students. Unpaid internships during the fall semester are also available to high school seniors with a minimum GPA of 2.0.
