The Summer Associates Program provides a select group of business and international affairs graduate students with the unique opportunity to help build the field of impact investing and social entrepreneurship. Summer Associates work closely with senior management in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial atmosphere. The duration of the Summer Associates program is usually 10-12 weeks, from mid-May to mid-August.

Summer Associates can work either in the DC office with a focus on strategy, business development, communications, systems building and project management, or in the Managua office with a focus on program execution, entrepreneur training, due diligence and event management. In addition, Associates in Nicaragua will also provide direct consulting to small business entrepreneurs.

The single biggest employer of former Agora Summer Associates is McKinsey & Company. Agora is grateful for the support and innovative solutions MBA consultants have provided our Impact Entrepreneurs.
