Broad College of Business students travel the world every year on internships.

They gain valuable work experience and get an opportunity to make connections that can last a lifetime.

In order to highlight both our interns and the businesses where they are working, the Broad College asks our partners to gather images of our interns on location.

Amazon

"I had an opportunity to visit five Amazon locations to collaborate with cross functional teams and learn from them to conceptualize a solution for my project. Even though I was at a robotics location, I enjoyed the people's part of Amazon."

SC Johnson

"One thing I learned this summer was the interconnectivity and cross-functionality that is required by supply chain folks to maintain a well-known consumer packaged goods brand. As part of a day of shadowing, I got to see how demand planners working in home storage collaborate on a regular basis with marketing teams on Ziploc to forecast supply based on market trends and sales data from retailers. Though I see supply chain and marketing as two completely different majors in Broad, there is often a lot of overlap in the industry and behind the scenes."

"The most important thing I learned was that the people I surrounded myself with often made the difference in my time at the bank. Whether I was reconnecting with alumni of the Financial Markets Institute or going to grab coffee with the executives and analysts of my group, people were always willing to take the time to give me guidance and feedback about the job and my work there this summer."

"My favorite experience was participating in a voice of customer ride along with the Portage Fire Department, giving me hands-on experience with our products and the customers that benefit from our products."

Omar Syed (Supply Chain Management)

Rack Room Shoes

"One of the key lessons I learned at Rack Room Shoes Corporate was the necessity of balancing autonomy with a unified vision. While being trusted to get creative can bring some unique, intriguing ideas to the table, it was never a mistake to check in with my open-minded supervisors and use everyone's experiences to guide the research. I quickly realized that the largest strides occurred when our goals were clear and in harmony."

Maddison Rizzo (Human Resource Management)

"One thing that I learned at my Human Resource Management Internship at the Salus Group is how the recruiting, hiring, and onboarding process works. I had the opportunity to interview job seekers and help them find the right position at the Salus Group that fits their qualifications. Being able to bring new hires in made me feel like I was a valuable part of the company."

"My favorite experience has been working with so many different departments. My specific role allowed me to work cross functionally between different teams, such as lean warehouse operations, inbound and outbound logistics, and even part processing. I have been able to supplement what I have learned in classrooms with real-world experience by being involved in so many different areas of the supply chain."
"One thing I learned which I feel was important in this internship is to not be afraid to ask questions. You have to remember that you are there to learn, so asking questions and testing for understanding is a sign of professional maturity to your employer."

Jacob Levack (Supply Chain Management)

Caterpillar Inc.

"One thing I've learned from my internship at Caterpillar Inc. is that establishing self-motivation ignites the quality work and development that internships have to offer. Coming into the office with an attitude that exhibits ownership over your own growth will completely enhance the outcomes that come from your day-to-day experiences. Outcomes including both your personal development and your contributions to the company you intern with."

Guadalupe Huapilla-Perez (Hospitality Business)

Hyatt Regency Lake Washington

"I learned what it is to manage and communicate with a team, especially at properties like the one I interned at with 12 floors, over 300 rooms and 6 major departments. It was cool learning how our revenue team would sell out our rooms perfectly every night!"

Cherry Sun (Finance)

Deutsche Bank

"My favorite part of my internship is the exposure to senior leadership within the bank. I really appreciate their openness to have 1-1 coffee chats and answer questions. They are willing to take the time to get to know us interns and offer genuine career advice."

“It is a special feeling to be a part of the inaugural cohort for the Lee Elder Internship, and it motivated me to put my absolute best foot forward for every opportunity that was presented to me so that I could help lay a great foundation for next year’s interns and beyond. This opportunity at the U.S. Open has exposed me to so much and has truly opened doors.”

United Airlines

"One tool I heavily utilized during my internship was Excel. Even though Broad students learn all about Excel and its features in various courses, this internship really put those skills to the test. I learned much more about Excel than I thought I knew and these new/improved skills will allow me to be more successful in the future."
Adam Hayes headshot

Adam Hayes (MBA)

Chevron Corporation

"I learned about the five Chevron leadership behaviors during a leadership engagement session with executive vice president Jay Johnson. He shared that 'Good leaders will set clear expectations, observe performance, remove barriers, give and attain feedback, and coach others.' This resonated with me as I was a people leader at my last employer. Removing barriers and establishing transparency for my associates were deliverables that I worked to achieve daily."

Rocket Companies

"The company's willingness to invest in my development was my favorite aspect of my internship. The abundance of opportunities for interns to participate in online trainings, seminars, and shadowing different departments across the whole organization was a privilege. In addition, my mentors, team members, and leaders' willingness to assist me throughout the summer provided me a lot of flexibility to explore and ask questions."

"I can confidently say that something I learned was how to proactively source investment information to create a comprehensive thesis articulating a final recommendation based on the portfolio's strategy."
Victoria Gavilan headshot

Victoria Gavilan (Marketing)

Steelcase

"One thing I learned during my internship is to truly know and seek to understand your audience. This is applicable for marketing in terms of the consumer, but also relevant for business life in general. Understanding who you are talking to cross functionally, how to present to a certain team of people, and how to act to be most successful in relationships are all still ways of knowing your audience. Building these skills during my internship has taught me how to be a well informed marketer and business professional moving forward in my career."
Alan Saleh headshot

Alan Saleh (Supply Chain Management)

Target

"My favorite experience at Target was the level of autonomy I was given through this role. Target does not treat you like an intern you actually immerse yourself in the role. I was able to become an acting operations manager and experience all the job had to offer and it felt incredible to learn, but also experience the same role as my mentors and peers."
"Among the many lessons learned from this internship, perhaps the most important was how to effectively manage a team despite internal and external pressure, coordination with other departments, and unforeseen complications."

The Country Club

"This summer the Country Club hosted the 122nd U.S. Open championship. My favorite part of my internship there was bartending on the 18th green for the week of the Open. Working on the 18th green as the golfers came down the stretch was one of the most unique experiences. From the roars of the crowd as Matt Fitzpatrick finished on the 18th, the sounds were deafening and there was an energy that was indescribable."

Allie Bancroft (MBA)

Dell Technologies

"I learned to trust my creativity. If you are given a problem that does not have a clear solution, try different methods. As an intern or new employee you can offer a fresh perspective, so take your prior experiences and education to maximize your value. Even though I had no prior finance work experience, I was able to take other facets of knowledge I have to produce a creative answer. Once you get past the imposter syndrome and showcase your confidence, there's so much you can achieve."

Lauren Dowd (Finance)

Raymond James

"My favorite experience through my internship on the Equity Capital Markets team at Raymond James was working alongside intelligent and motivated individuals that were constantly going above and beyond to contribute to my professional development. Despite the currently slow equity market, they provided me with valuable, hands-on experience by staffing me on live follow-on deals and including me in weekly external calls."

"I was granted the opportunity to drive down to Kentucky and visit the Toyota plant. My mentor scheduled tours and I did a 5 hour (10 mile) tour of one of the largest automotive plants in the U.S. I was able to see how vehicles like the Corolla and RAV-4 were manufactured, from the engine being put together to the paint being coated on. This was a once in a lifetime rare experience that I was lucky enough to have."

Abigaile Wu (MBA)

GEP

"I will never forget that I had a great time visiting the office. GEP employees were very friendly and organized some wonderful events for us. GEP has a collaborative culture and there is no hierarchy, so you can communicate with supervisors easily and they are always friendly and open to new ideas."
