Student Impact


You must first attend an interest session or arrange to meet with a Horn Entrepreneurship staff member 1:1.

The Signature Internships are for ENTR majors only and primarily held in the summer. On occasion, Horn will offer part-time internships during the school year which are open to all qualified students.

Companies are recruited to participate, ensuring the work is “entrepreneurial” in nature. This ranges from small startups to a company of any size that needs assistance identifying and growing new customers, new products, new approaches and so on. This allows students to put classroom learning to good use.
