MBA Internships

Internships are an integral part of the MBA educational experience and of students' career management training. The internship search is essentially a trial run for students' full-time employment search in their second year. Students can expect to put in long hours researching industries and companies, building their professional networks, and honing their interview skills.

During the 2011-12 academic year, first-year MBA students faced the additional challenge of a shrinking job market. Despite these odds, 100 percent of the class found internships—many at top companies and at compensation levels comparable to previous years. The data below offers demographics on the MBA Class of 2014, internships, and historical compensation trends.
