Test your fit with entrepreneurship through an internship at an early stage company. The Entrepreneurial Summer Program provides a real-world opportunity to experience the pace and excitement of a very early stage environment.
Each year, around 10 percent of the MBA class will participate in ESP, taking on summer internships in companies that have between 5 and 50 full-time employees. Students finish ESP with greater clarity about their fit with, and interest in, an entrepreneurial career.
About 65 percent of ESP internships take place in the San Francisco Bay Area, but you can do an ESP internship at an eligible startup in any location, and previous students have interned with early stage companies located everywhere from Euless, Texas, to Bogota, Beijing, London, and Singapore.
ESP sources some internship opportunities, or you can “BYOS” (bring your own startup) by identifying an eligible company that matches your interests and offers a challenging role.
