Three times a year, Minerva opens doors to a group of carefully selected students and graduates to give them the chance to learn, explore, network and grow as part of Minerva’s Students' Training & Internship Program (STIP). Participants of STIP are not just temporary interns considered just another pair of helping hands but become an integral part of the team. While the program is fun, it is definitely not for those who easily give up. It tests your mettle and forces you to try out new things.​ This is not your regular coffee-fetching, photo-copying internship. It pushes you out of your comfort zone and encourages you to unlearn things to learn new ones. It offers flexibility but demands tremendous responsibility and work ethic.

As part of STIP, Minerva, in its subtleties and attention to detail, transformed me from a student to a mentor in just 4 months. With its well-balanced training programs, you get an insight into just about anything that can enable you to excel. The change I experienced after my time in Minerva is very fulfilling for me at least on a personal level. The more effort you put into Minerva, the more it teaches you back.
