A Mutually Enriching Experience

“The pre-MBA internship program between Cedars-Sinai Transplant Center and the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School was such a mutually enriching experience. I immensely valued the opportunity to create a learning and working experience for Jon Illani ... Cedars-Sinai Transplant Center is supportive of building out a more robust program to expand on this year’s success.  Therefore, we will be pausing during the Summer of 2022 to redesign and grow the experience so that it can be even more valuable to the Johns Hopkins Carey Business School pre-MBA students.”
