For a snapshot of where some of our interns landed this summer and to gain insight into what they learned from the experience, see the interactive page below.

Amit Agrawal
MS Business Analytics
Independence Blue Cross - Philadelphia, PA

“I got involved in building and implementation of 3 models to identify fraud, measure impact of complaints, and predict medical reimbursement amounts for members. I also managed a team of 25 analysts in the U.S. and India for 12 weeks, ensuring that the teams generated customer delight and looking for new opportunities to grow the business for the team.”

Matthew Bowery
MS Accounting
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) - Detroit, MI

“During my internship, I had the pleasure of shadowing PwC’s Vice Chairman and U.S. Tax Leader Mark Mendola. This incredible experience provided me with invaluable exposure and career insights as well as enduring professional connections.”

Leta Knupfer
BA Marketing
Stryker - Portage, MI

“I have learned a new way of digital marketing that I wasn't exposed to before. Stryker uses a different CMS and the strategy behind it was completely different from what I knew before. This has allowed me to learn a new way of campaigning and execution. I was handed real responsibilities from day one on top of a big learning curve. Everyone has been so welcoming and helpful with that process.”

Mollie McCarthy
BA Accounting, Minor in Entrepreneurship & Innovation
Dow Chemical - Midland, MI

“In the External Reporting Group, I am exposed to the steps and tasks that ensure Dow’s reports are compliant with various rules and regulations. My favorite internship experience was the group trip to Freeport, Texas. The finance interns flew down on the company plane and took a tour of the operations. Being able to see and hear firsthand about the logistics and processes that are used in creating the products was an extremely eye-opening opportunity.”

Ben Brooks
BA Supply Chain Management
Cisco Systems - San Jose, CA

“I have learned about the customer perspective of SCM and how companies need to use their supply chain to service their customers and build strong relationships. My favorite thing so far has been the experience of the culture at Cisco. The people are extremely friendly and willing to stop at a moment's notice to help with anything I am working on.”

Marc Wilson
MBA Supply Chain Management
Amway - Ada, MI

“The projects that I’ve worked on during the summer will have a tangible effect on the business: one of my projects will result in $4.5M revenue. Having so much responsibility has given me a real opportunity to apply what I’ve learned and get to know the business.”

David Falstein
MBA
Johnson & Johnson - New Brunswick, NJ

“My favorite experience was the opportunity to meet and break bread with Chief Procurement Officer Len DeCandia as well as Executive Vice President and CFO Dominic Caruso during a couple of program events. I was able to hear first-hand about the personal strengths and career choices that helped propel their careers forward.”

Shuyue Wang
BA Accounting
EY - Detroit, MI

“Getting involved in international tax practice and experiencing the real business world makes this internship extremely exciting.”

Sierra Hartman
BA & MS Accounting
Progressive Insurance - Mayfield Village, OH

“My favorite part of working at Progressive thus far was the opportunity to meet with C-level executives of a Fortune 200 company. Not only did they show how Progressive is an innovative and highly competitive company, they also were genuinely interested in helping me develop professionally. I was able to meet with an IT control manager who explained how the courses I was taking in the information systems track of the MS Accounting program could contribute to the corporation.”

Jackie Hsia
BA Supply Chain Management
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles - Auburn Hills, Michigan

“I have learned that effective communication is essential for a program manager. Knowing what questions to ask, at what time, is critical in order to gain information about program details that could get lost in the mix of a busy program. It is also important to take ownership of your assignments and set up metrics to measure your progress. ”

William Crimmins
BA Supply Chain Management
Motorola Solutions - Schaumburg, IL

“During my time at Motorola Solutions, I've developed a much better understanding of how procurement works and have obtained important knowledge and skills related to customer relationship management, sourcing strategy, and business analytics.”

Erica Mansour

AbbVie - North Chicago, IL

“At AbbVie, interns are encouraged to talk to people from all business facets to learn about the company. I have gotten the opportunity to talk one on one with senior management to expand my knowledge of the business as a whole. Not only am I learning about supply chain, but also understanding where it fits in the big picture.”

Lauren Wozniak
BA Supply Chain Management
Dow Chemical - Midland, MI

“I have a better understanding of integrated supply chain and what it takes to run such a large company. I have learned a lot about SAP and other data storage programs, which will be helpful in the future. My favorite experience has been getting to know the other interns and being able to make lifelong networks.”

Dana Drouillard
BA Supply Chain Management
General Motors - Warren, MI

“Teamwork is key when working at such a large corporation as General Motors. I worked with people from different functions daily, learning how to communicate effectively and work efficiently with a diverse group of people.”

Kyle Telder

“By way of this internship, I’ve learned the nuts and bolts of private accounting, I’ve gained a unique insight within the corporate world, and I now possess an array of connections at my disposal. My most enjoyable experience thus far involves the friendships and networking that I’ve created with the diverse employee pool that is Dow.”
