Initiated and facilitated by the IUGB Foundation, Mondelez International Cocoa Life has partnered with IUGB for our students and alumni to work on urban and rural projects with this global brand in Abidjan. Cocoa is one of Cote d’Ivoire’s main exports and an important source of economic development.

Students and graduates alike can apply for internship positions to increase their skills in research, public policy, data science, IT, M&E and community development.  Part of Cocoa Life’s mission is to empower the men, women and youth within cocoa communities to lead their own development and improve their livelihoods through entrepreneurship.

Mondelez is one of the largest snack companies in the world with global net revenues of $25.9 billion and net earnings of $3.4 billion in 2018. They have operations in more than 80 countries and employ around 80,000 in our factories, offices, research & development facilities and distribution activities around the world.
