The Heart of your MBA Experience

The Impact Startup Internship seeks to give MBA students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in local start-ups during their year of study by capitalizing on Beer-Sheva's thriving high-tech ecosystem, sustainable and social enterprise scene, and the proximity of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev to the Advanced Technological Park. The internship program, facilitated by the Bengis Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, starts with a non-credit bearing pre-internship training course that introduces participating students to the fundamental principles and language of the start-up world. After a matching process, interns begin their work with their respective startups during their second semester of study. To support interns on their internship journey, the program provides professional mentorship, continuous logistical support, and points of reflection to assess their progress and make any necessary adjustments. The flexible nature of the internship allows students to work dynamically with start-up founders and tailor their experience so that it is mutually beneficial. Ultimately, by teaming up with innovative start-ups and training with successful entrepreneurs, students will gain significant experience by participating in a meaningful real-world project, while expanding their professional networks.​
