The World Management Survey is a joint research initiative between academics at the London School of Economics, MIT, Harvard Business School, Stanford University, Cornell University, and the World Bank. This cutting-edge management and economic research builds upon the highly successful prior management research across manufacturing and public sector that has received wide coverage in international media, public policy and academia.
The methodology of the data collection involves interviewing managers at these establishments for approximately one hour. There are multiple vacancies in the North America and Europe/UK hubs. The job is for full time work during the summer (June/July/August). Your job as a WMS Intern would be to arrange and conduct interviews with managers of manufacturing firms under the supervision of a Team Supervisor.
This is an exciting opportunity for students as you will get:
- First-hand experience on the research methods of a large-scale survey;
- Competitive pay (weekly rates plus performance bonuses);
- A reference letter outlining your performance and longer-term opportunities for top performers.
