Entrepreneurial Summer Program

The Entrepreneurial Summer Program (ESP) offers students an experiential learning opportunity that affords deep insight into the day-to-day activities of an early-stage company through summer internships.

ESP comprises:

  • An 8- to 10-week summer internship with an early-stage company (about 10 to 50 employees)
  • Mentorship from an experienced individual at the company
  • A community of ESP peers
  • Programming provided by the CES
  • A matching living allowance

Early-stage companies that host interns must have promising business models and validation with customers and investors. More than half of ESP internships are self-sourced by students, and the CES also vets inbound internships for ESP eligibility.

ESP is open to first-year MBA students and returning joint-degree students.
