Graduate Business Career Management Announces Signature Program 

BRIDGES Experiential Learning Program for continuing MBAs
Deadline to apply May 7

We know that participating in the evening, accelerated or executive MBA program may not afford you the opportunity for a regular MBA internship. Because we know that gaining new skills and exposure to different fields is so important, we created the BRIDGES Experiential Learning Program. In its fifth year, this signature program is a unique opportunity for both working professional and full-time Santa Clara University MBA candidates to further enhance skills and real world experience through short-term summer projects. 

Paired with a Silicon Valley company or nonprofit organization, MBA student teams are tasked to solve a specific business challenge over the course of the summer using the skills acquired through your MBA education. This program is an ideal solution for students who wish to enhance any skill gaps with practical experience, and either currently hold a full-time job or are looking to transition into a different industry or discipline. 

You may apply as an individual or with a team of up to three classmates. This is not for academic credit and runs from mid-June to mid-August. You must be a continuing student to apply.

Deadline to apply is May 7. You will be notified by May 21 if you have been placed on a team. 

For full details and to find the application, go to:  www.scu.edu/business/graduates/careers/students/bridges-students.cfm
