Accolade’s MBA Summer Interns will gain a front-row seat to the most meaty challenges the company is tackling. These interns will own discrete deliverables but also work together to ensure the ultimate output of the intern group is more than the sum of its parts. They’ll be asked to demonstrate flexibility and a willingness to lend their skills and intellect to other important topics that may arise throughout the summer. We’re looking for individuals who are excited about our ambitious mission, passionate about the value of our service, and keen to roll up their sleeves and contribute from the outset.
A day in the life...
Accolade is in growth mode – most in the organization will be heads down, consumed with “getting things done” as the business plan requires. We’ll benefit from sharp resources with an objective view and the capacity to do needed strategic work. Below are some examples of assignments you may be given:
- Support Corporate Development by researching a market / its players and developing a perspective on whether a particular capability would be additive to our service and, if so, how we should approach collaboration.
- Consider trends in the employer benefits space and brainstorm additional capabilities that would help us drive more business.
- Assess a process within our Operations organization (the Health Assistant Center) – e.g., how we connect members to a telemedicine provider or expectant mothers to the appropriate maternity program – and determine ways the process could be optimized.
- Evaluate our Health Assistant and nurses’ needs as relates to a piece of technology being deployed by our R&D organization – are they ready to take full advantage of it to the benefit of our members? What can we do to ensure successful deployment?
MBA candidates preferred. Past experience or coursework in healthcare valued. Past experience in strategy consulting and/or corporate development a plus but not required.
More than anything, we’re looking for people who are curious and capable of moving quickly with minimal direction.Additional Information
