Each year, Endeavor recruits graduate students from leading US business schools to spend 10 weeks during the summer working on-site with our entrepreneurs as “eMBAs” — as part of our eMBA Program which is generously supported by Barclays Capital. The three primary areas of focus for the eMBA projects are strategy, operations, and financing.
Over the years, more than 200 MBA students — after a highly competitive application process — have been placed with entrepreneurs from all Endeavor countries. Endeavor ranks among the top 2% of recruiters at Harvard Business School and Stanford, and recruits from other leading schools including MIT-Sloan, Wharton, Columbia, Kellogg, Yale SOM, and INSEAD.
This summer, 35 students are spending their summers as eMBAs throughout Latin America, the Middle East and South Africa. Their diverse experiences, both professional and personal, are certainly something to write home about, which they’re doing this summer! All eMBAs are contributing updates to Endeavor’s internal network during their internship, engaging the Endeavor family and their fellow eMBAs with updates and observations. On an ongoing basis, we are reprinting many of these posts on the Endeavor.org blog as part of this summer’s “eMBA Field Report” series. Enjoy the witty and eloquent insights our eMBAs have to share…
