MBA Internships:Matching Students with Dynamic Startups

Shaping theEconomy of Tomorrow

Fact: not all MBA students go to business school in pursuit of formulaic Fortune 500 jobs. Many crave the dynamic world of entrepreneurial startups, looking to learn from the risk-takers and big-thinkers who will shape the economy of tomorrow. Offering wide-ranging learning experiences and promising career opportunities, small but fast-growing businesses are a vital part of the corporate value chain and strongly appeal to curious students.

TalentMBA provides a matchmaking connection between entrepreneurs in search of highly competent interns and first-year MBA students. We aim to be the premier resource for students seeking ground-floor opportunities and exposure to dynamic career paths, using time-tested placement methodologies to match specific employer needs with candidates whose talents are a complementary fit.

As career services professionals, you recognize that the competition for recruiting top MBAs escalates annually, with Fortune 1000 companies engaging MBAs early and often for summer internships. This leaves the underserved and resource-starved startup community at a disadvantage, craving MBA talent but without a cost-effective, efficient means to find the right individuals. TalentMBA exists to bridge this gap, uniting business-minded, entrepreneurial students with appropriate opportunities in a dynamic landscape that breeds future success.

Please contact us to schedule a meeting, we’d love to discuss how TalentMBA can help your students find amazing opportunities!

Pedro was an absolute treasure during my MBA journey. He played a pivotal role in my quest to break into the consulting world. My meetings with Pedro were eagerly anticipated because I knew he consistently delivered an exceptional level of service and knowledge. Looking back, the roots of my success extend deep into the guidance provided by Pedro. He is not only top-notch in his field but also genuinely cares about your success both professionally and personally.”
