MEM Internship Company Name
MEM Internship Title
Product Commercialization Intern
Why did you choose the Dartmouth MEM?
The tight-knit Dartmouth alumni network was the key to my decision as other McGill grads/international friends of mine that ended up at Stanford, Columbia, etc. for similar Masters programs were left without internships/jobs months after graduation.
What was the most valuable part of your MEM internship experience?
Helping a tech company experiencing hypergrowth scale its product mangement team by improving transparency and identifying opportunities for growth/optimization.
How did the Dartmouth MEM prepare you for your career?
The MEM honed the hard technical skills required to do a broad set of jobs (data analysis, risk analysis, resource optimization, project management techniques, etc.) while preparing us for the higher-level conversations that ultimately helped accelerate my career growth (speaking to execs as peers re: strategy, organizational design, resource management, industry trends, etc.)
What is your favorite Dartmouth MEM memory?
Class trips (Moosilauke, Class of '66 lodge, etc.) were a lot of fun and really brought the whole MEM class together… intramural sports like soccer and flag football against other members of the Dartmouth community made us more of a cohesive group while having fun.
