Marcel Gani Internship Program - Traditional Internship

Overview | Host Information | Traditional Internship | Student-Initiated Internship | Self-Hosted Internship

Traditional Internships are internship opportunities arranged by the Institute with a host company to provide Ross students with an opportunity to receive hands-on entrepreneurial experience.

The recommended minimum compensation is $1,200 per week for an MBA and $900 per week for a BBA for a minimum of 12 weeks. Students must be a first-year MBA or equivalent for evening and dual degree students, or a Sophmore or Junior BBA and must be currently enrolled at the Ross School of Business. International students are responsible for ensuring that their visas meet eligibility requirements for work.

Student Application Process:

    1. Review the entrepreneurial companies that contacted the Institute to hire summer interns and follow the links to read the job description.

    2. Drop a resume for the appropriate positions followed by a phone call or an email to the company contact to express a personal interest in the internship.

    3. Companies will contact students directly to request an interview.


  1. Internship Plan: During the second week of the internship, the intern will write an internship plan that describes what the job focus will be for the summer and what value will be gained from the internship. It should clearly detail the student's individual goals for the summer and the goals of the host company.

  2. Thank You Letter: Each intern is assigned to a specific Institute donor who provided funding for the Marcel Gani program. In the middle of the summer, the intern will write a thank you letter to the designated supporter.

  3. Final Summary: A week after the internship ends, the intern will write a three to five page essay explaining the challenges of the internship, the solutions to those challenges, and how the intern's work will be used by the host company in the future.

  4. Post Internship: Interns do not earn academic credit; however, they may choose to write an academic case, based on their internship experience, for credit or compensation through the Institute's Case Writing program. Approval from the host company is required.
