Entrepreneurial Internships

IEI enriches students’ internship experience and reassures the highest value to participating sponsor companies. During the internships, students are engaged in high-impact activities, receive direct mentoring from leaders in sponsoring companies, and are managed throughout the process by instructors that are experienced executive coaches in their own right.

IEI internships allow students to work in an entrepreneurial new venture or accelerator on a specific 100-hour, high-value project. Emphasis is placed on helping students understand how they create value for the organization they are working with while making sure they learn the most from the experience themselves.
