Qualcomm Lavin Center Social Entrepreneur Internship

Student Non-Profit

The Lavin Entrepreneurship Center facilitates numerous employment opportunities (e.g. paid internship, graduate and research assistant, and part-time consulting positions) for SDSU students.

The Lavin Center also hires students to work on the 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.

The Qualcomm Lavin Center Social Entrepreneur Internship Program places MS/MBA students with non-profit organizations as 'intern-consultants' each semester and summer to perform strategic analysis and/or project management.

Internships typically last 150 hours, and students are paid between $15-20/hr depending on the scope of the internship and commensurate experience. This unique opportunity teams interns up with the SDSU faculty advisors, Qualcomm mentors and the non-profit agency. Assuming your background meets preferred criteria according to the non-profit, your resume will be forwarded to the host organization. If a match is made, paperwork is coordinated by the Lavin Center and the student is hired through the SDSU Research Foundation. Students are paid and internships typically last 150 hours over the course of the semester.
