D’Aniello Internship Program Offers Entrepreneurial Opportunities

D’Aniello Internship Program Offers Entrepreneurial Opportunities

Each semester, the Whitman School offers D’Aniello Internships that provide a select group of exemplary undergraduate and graduate students with unique entrepreneurial opportunities. For the 2016-17 academic year, 15 students were offered a spot in this highly selective program. The fall 2016 interns included Andrew Shiah, Christopher Yu, Elliot Carter, Lev Rosenzweig-Ziff, Shannon Carnahan, Pierce Toshiro Milliken and Kelsey Ketzner. The spring 2017 interns were Hugh Fisher, Amy Ribar, Bella Carter, Ian St. Clair, Michael Durso, Kyle Driscoll, Robert Melamed and Brittany Rich.

The D’Aniello Internship is an honor that provides the interns with invaluable work experience. Selected students work directly with an executive or founder of a rapidly growing, innovative entrepreneurial environment in the greater Syracuse area. Interns are challenged and expected to produce visible results through hands-on, experiential learning.

By successfully completing the internship, D’Aniello interns develop skills
in business development, marketing, social media planning and supply chain logistics that make them significantly more competitive in the job market
upon graduation.
