USCIB-NYU Stern Fellowship in Business and Human Rights

In order to run companies successfully, business leaders must have an awareness of human rights and corporate social responsibility issues and an understanding of how to confront them. For the second year in a row, USCIB has partnered with the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights to offer first-year MBA students a paid opportunity to work at a multinational company on a business and human rights challenge during their summer. USCIB is inviting member companies to participate in the fellowship program that matches talented NYU Stern MBA students interested in corporate responsibility with USCIB members willing to provide a hands-on summer internship opportunity.

The deadline to apply is February 29, 2016. This year’s participating USCIB members include Facebook, New Balance, Newmont Mining and PepsiCo. All applicants will go through at least two rounds of interviews. First, a number of qualified NYU Stern MBA students will be selected by the Center from a general pool through an application and interview process. Applications of initially selected candidates will then be forwarded to participating companies so they can select which candidates they would like to meet for a second round interview. Each company will be able to make the final decision as to which candidate, if any, to extend an offer.

Last year, two fellows interned with USCIB members PepsiCo and DirectTV Latin America. The fellows discuss their experiences in blog posts here and here, as well as in the video below:

The fellows had very substantive experiences, completing tasks through their internships that contributed directly to key business operations and strategy in the area of CSR, sustainability and human rights
