Inside Under Armour's exclusive internship program, which is harder to get into than Harvard

  • Under Armour's internship program is incredibly competitive.

  • Over 17,000 applicants competed for 98 open positions in 2018.

Under Armour's internship program is competitive. In 2018, a total of 17,400 hopefuls submitted applications for 98 spots. That's just a bit over a 0.56% acceptance rate.
