Role Overview

Accolade’s MBA interns will gain a front-row seat to the most meaty challenges the company is tackling. These interns will own discrete deliverables but also work together to ensure the ultimate output of the intern group is more than the sum of its parts. They’ll be asked to demonstrate flexibility and a willingness to lend their skills and intellect to other important topics that may arise throughout the summer. We’re looking for individuals who are excited about our ambitious mission, passionate about the value of our service, and keen to roll up their sleeves and contribute from the outset.

A Day in the Life

Key Projects, Deliverables & Primary Responsibilities:

The MBA internships will be scoped in response to the most pressing challenges facing the business as we enter the summer. In broad strokes:

  • The Corporate Strategy intern is likely to support both internally and externally-focused analyses (e.g., generating ideas for increasing operational efficiency or improving quality in the Health Assistant Center as well as competitive research or M&A prospecting).
  • Service Operations interns will primarily focus on helping us identify ways to improve the Client Experience (e.g., through market research re: client experience and quality best practices within service and tech-enabled service companies) and optimize our Workflow / Process (e.g., evaluation of current state, analysis of performance metrics, proposals for alternatives).
  • The Clinical Strategy intern will support the Clinical Team as they refresh – and build out new – care processes, helping account for a market perspective / evolving demand and our internal commitment to generating quantifiable outomes.


Key Knowledge, Skills, or Qualities:

Advanced degree candidates. MBA candidates preferred. Past experience or coursework in healthcare valued. Past experience in strategy consulting and/or corporate development a plus but not required.  Demonstrated interest in Operatings Management, Client Experience / Quality, and/or Healthcare investing / Corp Dev of interest.


We’re looking for people who are curious and capable of moving quickly with minimal direction.



Values we admire

  • We find joy and purpose in serving others.
    • Making a difference is what we do. We do the right thing for the right reasons – and we do it well, even when it’s hard.
    • You operate from a perspective of truly caring about our employees, clients, and customers and creating value for them.
  • We are strong individually and together, we’re powerful. 
    • We believe in each other, in honesty, and in having fun. You won’t find egos or office walls here because we aren’t defined by titles – but by actions, behaviors and results.
  • We roll up our sleeves and get stuff done.
  • We’re boldly and relentlessly reinventing healthcare.
    • We are a company changing the world, one person at a time.
    • Super high expectations? Bring it on? Our curiosity drives us.
  • You understand our desire to be the best place to work and that trust is the foundation of that.
