)-- The NC State Jenkins MBA program (http://mgt.ncsu.edu/mba/) has announced the launch of two new fellowship programs to be offered in fall 2011 in entrepreneurship (HiTec) and supply chain management. Through the fellowship programs, students will receive full tuition and health insurance, along with a generous stipend of $12,000 per year. The fellows will be expected to work closely with faculty and partner companies on applied research projects.
Supply chain management fellows will be assigned to a faculty mentor to work on applied research projects sponsored by corporate members of the Supply Chain Resource Co-Operative (SCRC). The fellows will be invited to the December and April meetings of the SCRC, and be expected to take a summer internship with an SCRC company.
Entrepreneurship (HiTEC) fellows will complete MBA 576 and 577 during their first academic year of residence. During their summer internship and their second year in the program, fellows will work with entrepreneurship faculty to examine the commercial potential of emerging technologies. During the spring of their second year, they will complete MBA 570 and develop a strategic plan for a local growth venture. Throughout their training, students will work with a faculty mentor and professional mentors from the entrepreneurial community who will help them explore opportunities and get to know people with the ability to provide a variety of useful resources.
