About National Basketball Association

Chances are, if you want to intern with the NBA you’re already a huge basketball fan. The National Basketball Association was founded in 1946 as the Basketball Association of America, with 11 member teams. Today, 30 basketball teams belong to the NBA, which grosses about $2 billion a year in related sales. The organization also features the WNBA, Basketball U (where those who crave to learn more about the game on a higher level can go), and NBA City, a popular theme restaurant in Orlando, Florida.

NBA interns work in several different departments, including communications, human resources, interactive services, international television, and marketing and media. Placement depends on company need and the applicant’s experience. Duties vary by department, though most will probably include some clerical responsibilities.


Open to college sophomores and juniors.
