Solving Business Problems and Building a Network

The MBA Consultants to Nonprofits Program connects Miami Herbert MBA students with local not-for-profits. As part of this summer internship program, students gain valuable experience solving business problems while also expanding their networks. The program instills the spirit of community engagement and service, as students share their skills and expertise for worthy causes.

MBA students spend 10 weeks advising not-for-profit organizations on basic business applications ranging from accounting and financial planning to supporting human resource and marketing functions. Participating 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 showcase 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), managing director of the Bermont/Carlin Group (a Morgan Stanley affiliate) and Miami Herbert Business School's Ethics Program.
