During this program, interns learn how to skillfully build a business while simultaneously calculating risk – the essentials of constructing a successful enterprise. Student participants work closely with Georgetown University professors and business professionals to write business plans, develop research skills, as well as learn teamwork, proper oral presentation techniques, and critical communication skills.
