Lavin Center Internship Program

Students Non-Profit

The Lavin Entrepreneurship Center facilitates numerous employment opportunities (e.g. internship, graduate and research assistant, and part-time consulting positions) for currently enrolled SDSU students. Typically, the Center hires up to 100 students per year to work with regional entrepreneurial companies, non-profit organizations, and technology innovators.

The Center also hires students to work on the Lavin Center's programs and strategic initiatives. Most positions tend to be targeted toward graduate business students but all currently enrolled SDSU students with qualified experience are encouraged to submit applications.

Earning Course Credit - In order to earn graduate course credit for an internship, you must enroll in either:

  • BA 780 - Field Studies in Business, or
  • BA 798 - Special Study

Please note that you will need to verify with your professor that the internship project meets all requirements for the course credit.

The QUALCOMM Lavin Center Social Entrepreneur Internship Program places MS/MBA students (must have completed the core courses or equivalent) with non-profit organizations as 'intern-consultants' each semester and summer to perform strategic analysis or project management.

This unique opportunity teams interns up with faculty advisors, a mentor from QUALCOMM and the non-profit agency. Internships typically last 150 hours, and students are paid between $15-20/hr depending on the scope of the internship and commensurate experience.

If you are interested in this type of internship, please submit your resume to Bernhard Schroeder at
