SOMPost February 2022

What We're Excited About

The third year of the Small Business Internship Program!

Yale SOM fully supports hiring in all sectors – and sizes! The SBIP was created to provide supplemental financial support to a limited number of students summer interning in for-profit small businesses and start-ups. While students manage the application to the fund, hiring employers must meet the following criteria:  

  • For-profit businesses providing compensation/stipend up to $4000/ summer internship
  • Global internships eligible
  • Internships must be at least 6 weeks of full-time work (or equivalent)
  • Student application requires certification by an employer, including that the employer is not hiring other MBA interns at a higher rate

If you have great projects for a Yale SOM student to tackle, reach out to the CDO with your summer MBA internship opportunities!

HireSOM pro tip: Many student attendees will be familiar with your organization and opportunities, and some will be exploring and learning as they go. Maximize your time with students by having a few different approaches prepared. A brief intro to your organization is a must-have. Beyond that, what else can you share with students that they cannot find in a job description or on the internet? Students are hungry for engaging conversations during which they get a feel for company culture and an inside look at what to expect during the interview and hiring process.
