We do it by finding the brightest minds and giving them a place to collaborate, take risks, and get even brighter. Our focus on people isn't corporate jargon: it's essential to our success. It's the reason Fortune, Forbes, Corporate Equality Index, and other organizations have consistently rated us a best place to work. And it's how we're going to leave the world better than we found it. Because products alone can't create progress—but people can. And our people do. Key Role: The Summer Games is an innovative internship program that attracts some of the nation's best and brightest students.

Throughout the Games, interns receive mentorship from senior leaders, collaborate and experiment in Booz Allen's innovation ecosystem, solve problems using Booz Allen's products and unique engagement models, and leverage the power of rapid prototyping. The summer culminates with a final Challenge Cup competition and presentation to senior leadership. A past winner took the challenge of helping blind individuals navigate by using new technology, creating a functioning prototype, and developing a business and market penetration plan. Teams have also helped develop an app that gives military commanders an easy way to track real-time and open-source information about developing situations such as sudden attacks, fighting human trafficking, and even tracking the spread of a disease worldwide. This internship is located in Blue Ash, OH and will depend on the needs of the business and the skills of the applicants.
