The McCombs Corporate Finance Fellows Program, which was founded through collaboration between the McCombs School and Intel, provides opportunities for MBA students to gain experience in the application of finance tools and methods to corporate finance problems. The program enables students to work in teams on real world projects with representatives from Intel and other corporate partners.
The Corporate Finance Fellows for each MBA class are selected during their first semester in the MBA program on competitive basis. Groups of four to five selected students, each of which is paired with a corporate sponsor, then participate in a three-credit-hour practicum course in the spring semester of their first year and another such practicum course in the fall semester of their second year in the MBA program. Groups are selected and paired with corporate sponsors based upon the preferences of the students and the sponsors. The expectation is that, in most cases, the students in each group will also have a summer internship with the corporate sponsor for their group.
McCombs School finance faculty and executives from the corporate sponsors jointly oversee the projects that the students work on in the practicum courses. The project work is augmented during each semester with lectures by faculty and sponsors on selected finance topics. At the end of each semester, each team presents their findings to sponsor company management at a company location.
This opportunity is open to all first-year MBA students. For the summer internship component, students must have a permanent right to work in the U.S. (no sponsors, no exceptions). Interested students must submit a letter of interest, a completed application, and a resume.
