    Placement Steps

    Each student will go through the following steps to be placed into an internship. Understand that the information provided in the program application will be shared with companies who make the final decision whether or not to host a particular student.

    1. Pay Program Deposit
    2. Initial Placement Interview will be conducted on campus or via skype after acceptance into the program. The interview will be with the Placement Team.Every effort will be made to provide you the optimal internship experience. It will be very important to concisely describe to the Placement Team the kind of internship experience you seek. Be very realistic about your expectations to be placed in certain kinds of internship positions if you have little or no direct work experience. Be sure to research your selected location, industries of interest and ideal internship position before your interview!
    3. Resume sent to multiple companies
    4. After your Initial Placement Interview, you may be asked to conduct a company interview as well. The Placement Team will be in touch with you to confirm interview details. Not every company requires an interview with the student and that is not out of the ordinary - again this depends on the host company and its processes.
    5. Details regarding your Internship Placement will be disclosed as soon as possible. The placement process and timeline varies student to student and is dependent on the host companies' timeline. Please do not worry if another student has information on a placement but you have not yet heard.


    Who is the Placement Team?

    The Placement Team carefully matches students' skillsets with internship position descriptions. They share the students' resumes with various companies that match the students' requested profile and the company then decides who they will hire.

    Placement Disclosure

    While we guarantee you a meaningful business internship, please be realistic about the level of internship in which you will be placed. If you have limited or no work experience, no specialization coursed completed, limited leadership experience, or other kinds of business-related activities, you will be matched with an entry-level position in your requested discipline and industry. However, if you do have a more robust resume, we'll do everything we can to match you to a higher-level position.
