Summer Research Opportunity at Harvard Business School
Jan 22 @ 12:30 pm – Feb 18 @ 7:22 am
Summer Research Opportunity at Harvard Business School

Program for Research in Markets & Organizations: A 10-week program for undergraduates who wish to work closely with Harvard Business School faculty on research projects on topics ranging from business strategy to social media, and from innovation management to private equity.

PRIMO is now entering its eleventh year. The tentative program dates for Summer 2021 are June 5, 2021 to August 14, 2021. If the program is offered in person in summer of 2021, PRIMO fellows will be offered Harvard campus housing, a partial board plan, and a modest research stipend. If the program is offered virtually, PRIMO fellows will receive a modest research stipend. As part of the community of researchers, students will participate in enrichment activities such as faculty lectures, professional development workshops, presentation opportunities, and social events.

PRIMO is open to continuing students (those who will be rising sophomores, juniors, or seniors at the time of the program) who are in good standing at a 4-year undergraduate institution in the United States. Students must commit to the full ten weeks of the program.

Student applications for the 2021 program are now open and will be due on Thursday, February 18, 2021 at 12:00 pm EST.

In the summer of 2020, PRIMO was offered virtually, and fellows worked on research projects with faculty and participated in all activities via Zoom from their homes. Whether the program will be offered virtually again or on campus has not yet been determined. The COVID-19 outbreak is evolving daily, and we simply cannot predict what may occur in the next few weeks and months. The decision will be made by the Harvard Summer Undergraduate Research Village and will be announced on this webpage as soon as we have more details. We appreciate your patience as we navigate the academic world in times of a global pandemic.

Translation & Interpretation Workshop Series: MSU Faculty Round Table

MSU has organized a series of three workshops in FS20 and a MSU Faculty Roundtable in SS21 on the

target language (Japanese, French, or Spanish). All are welcome to attend the language neutral portion of
each workshop. Each workshop will be three hours long (1.5 hours for non-language specific audiences
and 1.5 hours for target language audiences). The non-language specific workshop will be organized
around four key issues: (1) Navigating the paths to becoming a professional; (2) Scoping the field and its
future; (3) Learning strategies and methodologies for translation and interpretation; and (4) Identifying
resources for the profession. The language specific workshop will be a hands-on workshop focusing
mainly on strategies and methodologies for translation and interpretation.
