Internship Title: Digital Strategy & Investments - MBA Associate
Location: New York City
How did you find your summer internship?
I searched on major labels’ career sites directly.
Most interesting project/takeaway from the summer?
Though Sony Music is in the business of producing, marketing, and distributing the works of recording artists, I spent much of the summer focused on podcasts. One interesting project was analyzing the global podcast industry, and figuring out which international offices Sony should allocate capital to for investment in original podcast production. A key takeaway: voice your interests and propose projects! Management responds well to initiative, and would rather you work on something you’re passionate about than not (assuming it’s sufficiently impactful).
What 1st Year CBS class/principal was most useful during your summer internship?
Corporate finance – I used some of the core tools when building valuation models for potential investments.
Job before CBS?
Strategy & Corporate Development for Migo, a company in Southeast Asia that is focused on delivering digital entertainment and education to mobile-only consumers in emerging markets, without using the internet.
