Positions are for a term of 12 months.
Second-year students and recently graduated MBAs apply to the Corps through their school. They are then nominated to the Corps by a selection committee at each school. In early spring, a committee of the school representatives matches nominees to identified positions in host countries. Corps members begin a language training and orientation program in July and start their 12-month Corps assignments in October.
Advisors serve on a
basis, with corps members receiving local per diem and housing from their host companies. The MBAEC provides training, round-trip airfare, medical insurance, a reentry stipend and where appropriate, supplemental living stipends.
