I-CCEW Lunch & Learn
Learn about I-CCEW's internship opportunities for OUHSC students.
Program Overview: Formed in 2006, the Ronnie K. Irani Center for the Creation of Economic Wealth (I-CCEW) is an exciting opportunity for OU graduate students in OKC to work with researchers, private sectors companies, and industry experts to advance early stage ideas and technologies. After completing a highly competitive application and selection process, teams of interdisciplinary OU MBA and OU HSC interns will spend a semester working closely with mentors and inventors on real-world health-related technologies and ideas, and ultimately make recommendations on how to bring them to market. In the process, student interns will receive experience in a real-world entrepreneurial business idea, and will develop significant research, problem-solving, and communication skills from training based on that of top management consulting firms. Through interaction with industry mentors, guidance from the staff, and a weekly seminar, I-CCEW adds value to Oklahoma's economy by nurturing new enterprises and providing significant professional development for some of OU’s top students. Since 2006, I-CCEW interns have worked on more than 125 technology and innovation projects and have helped raised over $8MM in funding for these ventures. The program is designed to have a meaningful impact on our students, community, and Oklahoma at large.
Application and internship commitment details: I-CCEW will accept applications for Spring 2019 internships until October 26. To apply, students will submit a resume, 1 letter of recommendation, a copy of their transcript, and short essay responses. Applications are at ou.edu/iccew. Selected applicants will interview with a panel of I-CCEW staff on Wednesday, November 7. Interns can expect to spend 10-15 hours a week working on their projects, and will receive a stipend for their work.
