Summer internships are a critical building block in Fletcher's professional development process that leads to full-time employment after graduation. Recent summers have found MIB students in professional internships across the globe, building on their first-year foundation courses. Students secure internships in the public, private, and non-profit sectors and in a diverse array of industries including investment banking, private equity in emerging markets, political risk consulting, high tech, environmental sustainability, economic development, and microfinance. About one-third of the internships typically take place in the emerging markets, including Brazil, Chile, China, India, Mexico, Thailand, and Turkey.

Finance

"The internship helped me build on the financial modeling and analysis skills that I had developed over my first year at Fletcher. It was also valuable to work throughout the investment pipeline: evaluating new potential markets to invest in, analyzing new and existing investments, and sitting in on investment committee meetings where investments get approved."

The internship couldn't have prepared me any better for interviews."

Consulting

"My internship gave me an invaluable window into the consulting world. It was a great way to learn about an industry, working style, or geography that is attractive but unfamiliar. I learned how to be a good consultant, using frameworks and strategies for breaking large problems into many smaller ones and working methodically towards their resolution. It also improved some tangible skill sets, like building effective slide decks and building aptitude in the case interview method."

It was a great experience to visit some local sites and see the reality for local employees. I saw why this work is worth doing but also why it is so challenging."
