The internship is a vital—to say nothing of exciting—component of the Wisconsin MBA. Internships take place between the first and second year of the program and provide students the opportunity to apply the general business knowledge and introductory specialized experience gained in the first year. In turn, the internship informs the second year, which is focused on enhancing knowledge within the specialization.
Internships are a required part of the A.C. Nielsen Center’s curriculum. On-campus internship recruiting starts in October and can go through the spring semester. Companies host informational sessions also known as "info sessions" prior to interviewing candidates. 100% internship placement for the A.C. Nielsen Center has been a longstanding tradition. In the summer of 2012, our students spent their internships at Boston Scientific, Colgate Palmolive, General Mills, Jim Beam, Johnson & Johnson, Kimberly-Clark, Nestle, Procter & Gamble, and the Wm. Wrigley Jr. Company.
