The MBS Team works with both you as the internship provider and the student:

The MBS Student: We provide students with hands-on coaching and career development to help the student enhance their application and leverage the internship experience in order to build effective working relationships and be highly effective and productive as a member of your team.

The Company Advisor/Supervisor: We provide you with insights and create a plan for preparedness, expectations and assignments.


More than 85% of our internships are converted into a continued internship or full-time or part-time employment. What does this mean for you: you receive top level talent, ROI for your investment, and our student provides top level thinking, performance and results.

As a Data & Analytics Intern at Slalom, a strategy, technology and business transformation consulting firm, my client was the supply chain department of the world’s largest healthcare company. I worked on a business intelligence and data warehousing automation project, which helped the company to efficiently monitor metrics by saving time, cost and better visualization. The experience strengthened both my technical, analytical and leadership skills, as well as built my confidence level. - Devam Shah, Data Analytics
