MBA-SEE internship

The purpose of the internship is to provide students with opportunities to apply and explore course concepts in an area of personal interest within the field of social enterprise.

Students may pursue their own social entrepreneurial ventures during their internships and submit a proposal for academic approval. This proposal also serves as an application to the CSE Social Ventures Incubator.
