For Sponsoring Companies:
Participating companies gain access to talented, energetic students who provide a fresh perspective and make valued contributions. Companies also create a connection with the world’s foremost program in hospitality leadership education.
- Internship Duration – Internships can last from 2 weeks to 12 weeks. For example, students have approximately an 8 week Winter Break (Fall semester typically concludes in December and Spring semester generally begins in January; see academic calendar to stay up to date). This would allow for an approximate 6 to 8 week internship depending on the employer and student availability.Depending on the type of internship, availability can vary with each student. If the internship is remote, it can be done anytime of the year based upon the availability of the student.
- Intern Compensation and Living Expenses – Participating companies should be prepared to pay a competitive salary. Housing and transportation arrangements are the intern’s responsibility; however, any support and/or information a sponsoring company can provide regarding summer rentals, transit centers, etc. is helpful.
- Intern Reporting Relationship – Interns should report to an entrepreneur or senior executive accountable for a meaningful innovation activity within the sponsoring company.
