It’s Internship season!

With many first year MBA students now off to summer internships, two articles that surfaced this week make worthy reading: this one quoting Jack Welch on using the opportunity to show what you can do, and this one on the perks Silicon Valley interns enjoy.

Congratulations to all of our graduates this weekend, and first years (make that second years, as of now), have a great summer!
