To engage students in advancing the agenda on gender equality, GATE offers a competition each year for student fellowships. Each selected MBA Fellow receives a bursary of $10,000 and commits to work on a project related to the mandate of GATE under the supervision of GATE’s director, GATE Faculty Research Fellows, and Executive-in-Residence. Students will also benefit from mentoring from consultants at Bain Consulting as well as from GATE Faculty Teaching Fellows. The MBA Fellowships have been generously supported by BMO Financial Group for 2023-2028.
You can see current and past GATE MBA Student Fellows’ project topics and insightful outputs below. Students interested in being a student fellow can apply through the MBA in-program awards in May of each year.
GATE also hires MBA students for 12-weeks internships. During their internships, interns conduct research and write a series of case studies of how companies and organizations use a gender lens to design better services, products and strategies for more equitable outcomes. You can read the case studies here.
