I'll get to all that's going on now in my next post, but now I wanted to give you a recap of my awesome consumer marketing MBA internship at Taco Bell.
Hello, May I take your order?
No, I didn't spend all 12 weeks working the drive-thru. I did work one day in the store and got this awesome picture of me using the skills I gained at a nationally ranked MBA program to good use.
At Taco Bell this summer, I was working on a future-looking project that we're testing. So I have to be a bit hush-hush on the specifics, but it was a great experience getting a look at the future of the brand. Like many other marketing MBA internships, I had a strategic project, a creative project, and a leadership project. I worked on projects that had a wide ranging 20,000-foot high view of the brand, and then also worked on projects that affected the company at the restaurant level.
One of the biggest development opportunities I got from my internship was great experience testing out some of the methods and practices I learned in my MBA course curriculum. This is so valuable and shows the importance of an MBA for non-business majors.
Yum! Brands is just one of a huge list of companies that offer great internship experiences to Kelley MBA students. I'm so happy I had a great internship and am looking forward to using my Taco Bell experience at school and in all my future jobs!
