New York University's Stern School of Business (NYU Stern) has announced that it will launch a summer immersion program for MBA students interested in entrepreneurship.
As part of the new "NYU Stern Ventures Fellow Program," fellows will receive a $10,000 stipend, workspace, and will be able to participate in a summer program, which includes an immersion week in Silicon Valley. After the summer is over, fellows will also continue to receive mentorship and other support throughout their second year of the MBA program, and will be able to receive course credit for independent study where they can focus on their startups.
The new summer program can be pursued instead of a typical MBA internship. It would be ideal for aspiring entrepreneurs who want to get hands-on experience building a startup.
Incoming full-time MBA students will apply in Fall 2016 for consideration. The program is set to start in the summer of 2017.
