The Perlmutter Institute Corporate Internship Awards allow current Brandeis IBS students to intern at leading companies throughout the country—such as Accenture and J.P. Morgan—in their field of study during the summer months. While these awards help students gain academic credit, they also provide invaluable experience for students to gain real-world experience that gives them a view of what potential occupations of interest have in store.
