Description: In partnership with Canadian business schools, Mitacs is launching the Business Strategy Internship (BSI) program. BSI is a 16-week internship program that will provide undergraduate and graduate students with the opportunity to develop a strategic project in partnership with a small- or medium-sized company (SME) or not-for-profit (NFP) in Canada. The award will provide $10,000 to interested students who develop a project designed to help the organization restore or modify business operations in the new economic environment. Throughout the project, Mitacs provides online professional development opportunities to students. This exposure to a business internship at a Canadian organization is an effective means of complementing academic programming to build the practical skills needed for Canada?s future economy.
