UVM SI-MBA Post-Graduate Fellowship

Partner with Future Leaders

VBSR is collecting interest in working with University of Vermont SI-MBA students and alumni, which will be shared with these emerging leaders through a partnership with the University of Vermont Grossman School of Business.

About the Post-Graduate Fellowship

The University of Vermont SI-MBA program is an intensive one-year MBA program, including a capstone consulting project. The ideal start time for post-graduate fellowships is late summer/early fall after student graduation in August.

These short-term opportunities will bring graduate-level talent and support to your business objectives while providing opportunities for SI-MBA graduates to apply their comprehensive MBA education, learn new skills, and gain relevant work experience. Post-graduate fellowships are paid experiential learning/work opportunities.

Fellowship Structure

SI-MBA Post-Graduate Fellowships are paid opportunities starting as early as August with recently graduated SI-MBA students.

  • Time: Hours per week are flexible. A minimum of 20 hours per week is recommended.
  • Length: Duration is flexible. A minimum of 3 months is recommended.
