A third-year Fisher College of Business undergraduate student who spent time overseas this summer in nonprofit consulting has joined the Center for Operational Excellence as its intern for the academic year.
Tuhina Bhatt, a native of Clarendon Hills, Ill., will be assisting in administrative work and event management for the center through May 2019. In addition to her undergraduate work specializing in accounting, Bhatt participates in the college’s Business Analytics Industry Immersion Program and is vice president of membership for Ohio State’s Leadership and Service Academy.
This summer, Bhatt was part of a team that traveled to London, England, to work with Soles4Souls, a U.S.-based nonprofit, through the college’s Global Projects Program. In her work with the project consulting team, Bhatt and her colleagues helped the nonprofit with its operational expansion into the United Kingdom.
As part of its efforts to connect students to industry and support tomorrow’s leaders, COE employs a student intern each year. Past interns include Christopher Schmitt (2017-18), now a transaction advisory services staff consultant with Ernst + Young; Eric Schlabach (2016-17), now a senior analyst at center member Nationwide; and Savanna Coen (2015-16), now an assistant buyer with the corporate office of retailer Kohl’s.
