CFDA/Harvard Business School & Carolina Herrera

As part of the CFDA’s partnership with Harvard Business School (HBS), three MBA students had the opportunity to complete a summer internship in New York City’s thriving fashion industry. Saturday Kate Spade, Carolina Herrera, and your very own CFDA worked with an HBS student for ten weeks on a business development project ranging from an international new market entry case study, to projected growth business plans, and marketing strategies.

Summer Project Feedback: My summer project provided an incredible opportunity to learn about the heritage of an iconic brand, while also leveraging my past experiences and MBA education to (hopefully!) contribute something substantive to the company’s continued business success.

Miriam Martz has interned at Rebecca & Drew Manufacturing and Yves Saint Laurent. She has helped two classmates launch a web consultancy in Montreal called Evolving Web. Following her startup experience she worked as the Digital Project Manager at three different Canadian marketing and advertising agencies before attending Harvard Business School to earn her MBA. Earlier this summer she worked with the Digital Marketing team at CHANEL.
