While this Columbus, Ohio-based retailer has shed its Limited and Express apparel stores, its Victoria's Secret and Bath & Body Works names remain among retailing's top brands.

"Limited Brands has an excellent marketing team and they have grown to be very successful in America," said one student surveyed. Internships are offered to both undergraduate and graduate students during summer break. All internships offer project work and daily assignments, which range from one to four assignments and are presented to the brand's executive leadership at the end of the summer program. Interns actively participate in team meetings that include senior executives.
