Yes. Each Company Partner has its own requirements, which are always subject to change, but several of our partners have some opportunities for international students. We have successfully worked with dozens of international students in the past.
Yes! MG Accelerators only require a commitment of about 5 hours/week and are conducted entirely online, so they were never designed to be the primary focus for anyone. If you're feeling confident that your existing internship is the right match for post-grad, then there may not be much value in participating in an Accelerator. However, if you're still considering alternatives, our Accelerator can serve as valuable way to expand your exposure to a new industry, company, or business unit during your free time without sacrificing your dedication to your full-time role. The upside is that by the end of the summer, you might find yourself weighing two offers instead of one.
Eligibility for our programs depends on the talent needs of our Company Partners for each recruiting cycle. For Summer 2018 Accelerators, we are looking for freshmen, sophomores and juniors, with a special emphasis on individuals of diverse backgrounds (e.g. women, underrepresented minorities, veterans, LGBTQ, first-generation). However, we ensure inclusiveness in everything we do and encourage any motivated candidate to apply.
Please reach out if you have any further questions.
