Before the beginning of summer internships, students indulge themselves in social venture consulting projects, where they implement their skills in social enterprises, thus aiding them in serving their clients better. Students have worked with social enterprises serving in the micro-business, health, education and employment streams belonging to countries such as Ghana, Mexico and Paraguay.
