Weissman Center for International Business

Baruch Entrepreneurial Intern Fellowship Program

The Weissman Center for International Business and Baruch’s Lawrence N. Field Center for Entrepreneurship, with support from Ronald I. Heller ’67, have partnered to offer the Baruch Entrepreneurial Intern Fellowship Program for Baruch College undergraduate students.

The Baruch Entrepreneurial Intern Fellowship Program provides financial assistance to undergraduate students who complete an unpaid internship in a start-up company during a semester, while encouraging them to develop their professional and intercultural skills through programs offered by the Weissman Center for International Business at Baruch College.

An internship provides valuable experience and it is an important stepping stone to a full-time position in a student’s chosen profession.  However, internships are often unpaid, which can be a significant hurdle for students who already are stretched financially.  The Baruch Entrepreneurial Intern Fellowship Program generously offers a $1,250 stipend to help students overcome the financial hurdle of an unpaid internship.

The Baruch Entrepreneurial Intern Fellowship Program focuses on the entrepreneurial spirit of the ever growing global marketplace, and the program supports students who want to pursue an internship that has an entrepreneurial focus.
