Fuqua and Duke alumni and current students can be an organization's strongest advocates, and we encourage their involvement with recruiting whenever possible. Here are some ways to engage Fuqua students and begin building advocacy. 

Duke MBA summer internships

Duke MBA interns are available for 10 to 12-week assignments between their first year and second year, beginning in mid-May or early June. They can complete important projects and research, temporarily fill permanent hiring needs, provide innovative approaches to solving business problems, and establish a valuable connection between company and students.

Interns serve in numerous business functions:

  • product marketing
  • financial analysis
  • operations
  • market research
  • business strategy

Experiential learning

Mentored study program

This is an elective course in which a Daytime MBA student engages on a project for your organization while you serve as a mentor providing regular guidance. Engagements should last approximately 4 weeks with a student dedicating approximately 20 hours a week to your project. No fee is required to participate in the Mentored Study Program. For additional information about the program, contact the Program Director

Fuqua Client Consulting Practicum (FCCP)

This is an elective course in which a small team of current students will address a strategic or operational challenge for your organization. Available to both local and international organizations, these projects are hands-on, student-led, and faculty-guided, aimed at bringing a fresh perspective and actionable insights to help solve your organizational challenges.

FCCP client companies range from small social enterprise nonprofits and growth-stage startups to Fortune 500 companies. Projects cover business functional areas such as competitive analysis, market entry strategy, product launches, and market research. Clients take on a mentoring role in order to address important business questions that require a little more bandwidth than can be addressed by interns, but may not be structured enough to be addressed by professional consulting firms.

Participating students range from Masters in Management Studies (MMS) students at the beginning of their careers, to Daytime MBA students with 4-5 years of work experience in different industries, to Executive MBA students who have between 6 and 20 years of experience and insight.

You can learn more about the program here. Project submission deadlines begin in mid-September each year. For more information, contact the FCCP Office.
