HUWIB

2014 WIBternship

Welcome

As part of HUWIB's comp process, WIBterns attend an 11-week program in the fall of weekly panels introducing them to the many industries and opportunities available in business. Upon graduating the WIBternship in late November, WIBterns become Associates and have the opportunity to apply for a committee position.

WIBternship 2014 begins September 11th. Take a look at our calendar below for the schedule of panels for this year's WIBternship that include speakers from consulting, finance, entrepreneurship, fashion, non-profits, marketing, and many other fields of business.

Panels are weekly on Thursday nights, from 7:00-8:30pm in Harvard Hall. We hope to see you there!

Final Project

WIBterns are required to complete a small final project to complete the WIBternship. This project is meant to be fun, not stressful! WIBterns will team up with other members of their WIB Circle to prepare a small presentation, inspired by the fields highlighted in the panels.
