Testimonials

Accepting a summer fellowship in social enterprise, different from most of my peers’ internships, felt like a big risk. I was sure I wanted to do social enterprise for the summer but I am still figuring out next steps and so I was not sure how this fellowship was going to provide the tools and experience to go for different paths after my MBA. Now I feel that I found exactly what was right for me, regardless of what I decide to do afterwards, this is the type of internship that will allow me to explore different paths and get experience that is applicable and different industries. THANK YOU!

I have never felt more inspired to work my very best and hardest for an organization.
— MBA Fellow, 2014
Working independently on a project was a unique experience that allowed me to grow. Further, the exposure to the many, many organizations and individuals on Training Tuesdays provided a deeper understanding of the social impact sector - this was invaluable.

I couldn’t be more impressed with the intentional investment in us, along with high expectations for our involvement.

[The IC fellowship] boosted my confidence - improved willingness to contribute and participate in groups, opportunities to practice networking. The successful completion of my project and reaction from the client gives me conviction that I can be a useful source of advice and guidance for an organization.

Overall fantastic quality programming.

This was amazing! I was not expecting to receive so much from a small organization in the first week, I thought I was going to start working almost right away and receive little attention; I was impressed with everything the team prepared for us, it really inspired me to give my best on the following weeks, the enthusiasm and passion for their work of the IC team is contagious, this is the kind of team for which you authentically feel inspired to go the extra mile.

I have a much clearer picture of what I could not see myself doing, and what I could see myself doing… The summer gave me the ability to see myself in someone else’s shoes and assess how much I would be fulfilled with that job.
