Action-Based Learning

Impact Projects

The Erb Institute offers Impact Project funding to Erb students as an opportunity to drive business sustainability impact. You are invited to design high-impact projects to take your learning into your own hands during your time at the University of Michigan. Whether you want to attend a business sustainability conference, have an idea for a new business you’d like to launch or a sustainability initiative you’d like to co-create —we want to help you make an impact!

Two Internships

As an Erb student, you’ll complete two internships, giving you the chance to try something new and explore various roles and industries. If you’re still defining the career path you’d like to take, you can test out two different experiences to find the role that’s right for you. You will also qualify for Erb Institute internship funding up to $13,200 per year for qualifying internships.
