businesses. The Accelerator offers internship opportunities for
both undergraduate and MBA students. Positions are available in the
fields of marketing and finance. The internship consists of
substantive work and is suited to a student's specific interests
and strengths. Student analysts work on consulting engagements
alongside professional staff and faculty giving them the
opportunity to positively impact Indiana companies. Interns are
also assigned internal projects to further the organizational
development of the Accelerator. The College of Business created the
Accelerator with the goal of helping to transform the delivery of
business education, and the internship program is a vital part of
accomplishing this goal.
