The internship is a vital—to say nothing of exciting—component of the Wisconsin MBA. The program’s midway point, it’s the perfect opportunity to apply the general business core knowledge and introductory specialized experience gained in the first year. In turn, the internship informs the focused second year. Wisconsin’s winning formula produces MBAs who can turn on a dime. Their specialized training allows them to hit the ground running—which puts them that much farther ahead on the road to general management.
We help you take the first step.
Your progress toward a career in brand and product management starts with a summer internship experience between your first and second years of business school. This is a very important step because you will learn a lot during that summer and, if successful, you may land a full-time offer before you even begin your second year of study.
We help prepare you for your summer internship the moment you arrive on campus to begin your first year of the program. We review your resume and guide you to present the very best view of your accomplishments. We conduct interview training to help you appear polished and confident. Finally, we work with recruiters to ensure that students get the interviews they want.
We prepare you and we create the opportunity. Of course, getting the job is up to you! Our students have had great success. The Class of 2012 spent their summer at General Mills, Johnson & Johnson, Kraft, Unilever, WhiteWave Foods, Kimberly-Clark, Intuit, American Express, MillerCoors, Nestle-Purina, Procter & Gamble, and SC Johnson.
