Vermont Business Strategy & Consulting Summer Internships at Middlebury College

This position has been re-opened and spots are still available.

For students interested in leading a business, non-profit, or other organization, or in management consulting as a career, this internship provides an in-depth hands-on experience working on key strategic management issues for a local enterprise. The three enterprises and projects are listed below.

Interns will participate in a short orientation in late April on campus and should expect to spend 30 hours per week from June 4 to July 27 on this internship, primarily working on their projects, but also including a weekly review session with the other interns. Interns will receive guidance and mentoring from clients and an experienced management & strategy consultant.

  • $3,000 stipend
  • Eligible for on-campus housing
  • Open to rising sophomores and juniors

Option #1: Middlebury DLINQ: Exploring technology/digital in education and citizenship

Middlebury’s Office of Digital Learning and Inquiry (DLINQ) was launched in Jan 2018 as a result of unifying the Academic Technology Group in Middlebury, the Digital Learning Commons in Monterey, and the Office of Digital Learning. This internship will likely involve designing a system to monitor and measure the Middlebury community’s engagement with DLINQ’s mission and researching market opportunities for online and hybrid courses and programs for Middlebury’s Institute for International Studies.

Option #2: Opportunities Credit Union: Engaging Impact Investors

A fantastic example of a social enterprise blending solid business practices for community development ends, Opportunities Credit Union (OCU) provides deposit products, ebanking, loans, financial education and counseling to improve the financial stability of community members who other financial institutions may find challenging to serve. In this internship, two Middlebury students will develop and begin implementing a plan for engaging new impact investors. We will need to understand who invested in OCU in the past and identify the needs and interests of today’s impact investors. We will review OCUs financial and community impact track record to create a compelling pitch to these investors, including developing innovative investment or support mechanisms. Finally, we will visit high potential impact investors and explore working relationships with them. Learn more in Handshake.
