MBA Consultants to Nonprofits Program
Alexis Alvarez and Michael Nakash,
MBA students spend 10 weeks advising nonprofit organizations on basic business applications ranging from accounting and financial planning to supporting human resource and marketing functions. The students receive a stipend for their work as well as the satisfaction of seeing their labor have tangible effects almost immediately.
In early fall, at the conclusion of the internship, students present their summer projects and business plans to the organization’s directors and a panel of corporate executives. This formal event offers students another opportunity to build their network and develop their presentation skills.
Each year, more than 20 students and 20 nonprofits apply to participate in the program, which is sponsored by Adam Carlin, MBA ‘94, principal of Bermont/Carlin Group, a local Citigroup Smith Barney affiliate, and the School’s Business Ethics Programs.
