The Questrom Internship Fund for Social Impact
is on a mission to empower students across the Questrom MBA program to create lasting social impact by substantially funding career-accelerating, under-funded, purpose-driven internships.
Every year, the first-year class of MBA students at Boston University engage in summer internships that challenge them to use their new-found business acumen and offer the opportunity to build credentials and connections for their future careers. For some, the most promising and prestigious opportunities are out of reach because they offer little or no means of financial support. The Internship Fund aims to provide substantial summer grants to eligible students in order to encourage non-traditional MBA career paths without concern for financial barriers.
Since 2012, through awareness-building events and fundraising efforts, the Internship Fund for Social Impact aims to mobilize the Questrom MBA community to fund students pursuing career-accelerating internships that create a lasting social impact in their communities. The student-led initiative is funded by the entire MBA community: students, the administration, faculty, alumni, and the PEMBA program.
