In 2022, the Eugene D. Smith Leadership Institute launched its Micro-Internship program. The program is a 2-week long internship that aims to provide student-athletes with the opportunity to gain greater perspective into their chosen career and explore various industries. The Micro-Internship program consists of professional development and a 3-5 day internship experience with companies in and around Columbus.
Participating companies in the inaugural year included NetJets, OhioHealth, and Lower.com, providing more than 20 student-athletes with experience in a variety of industries. See below for highlights from last year’s program!
