Getting the best MBA intern for your business

Jan. 5, 2009, 12:44 PM

The Vanderbilt Owen Graduate School of Management will host a free workshop for Nashville-area companies to learn how to get the ideal intern for their business. The workshop will be held at the Owen School, Room 218, on Jan. 16 at 8 a.m. Registration starts at 7:30 a.m. The event is free and open to the public.

The workshop will include a practical “how to” guide for businesses of all sizes, along with best practices and panel discussions from local company experts who have successfully utilized MBA interns.

The director of the Owen School’s Career Management Center, Joyce Rothenberg, said that in this economic climate, a creative and motivated MBA intern may be the smartest investment for a company trying to complete big or small projects in strategy, market analysis, marketing, finance, operations, human resources and more.

“Business school interns can take a complex assignment from concept through completion if deliverables and direction are defined,” said Rothenberg. “MBA interns offer a timely and cost-effective way to complete important projects using a flexible resource with no long-term commitment.”
