Overview


The Robert I. Kabat Management Internship Program (MIP) is a comprehensive, six-week program, broken into three blended learning units (in-person and online are required), that provides in-depth analysis of the functions and processes of co-op management. More importantly, it emphasizes practical applications of these key competencies. Onsite portions of the MIP are held in the Fluno Center for Executive Education at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. This executive training facility offers business leaders and corporate teams a dynamic learning experience in a world-class environment. The online courses that are a part of the MIP allow you to attend from your cooperative or from home.

The Management Internship Program Certificate (MIP) is earned by completing all three units (Unit A, Unit B, Unit C) and completing and presenting the results of an individual project that applies the MIP classroom learning experience to issues at your cooperative.


Program Objectives
  • Develop understanding and skills across multiple functional areas within the co-op and an appreciation for how the work of each area impacts the functioning of the entire organization
  • Gain exposure to key roles and responsibilities associated with executive level leadership
  • Gain an appreciation for your leadership and management style, strengths and weaknesses
  • Foster a more strategic view of critical cooperative needs for delivering high value utilizing a comprehensive planning framework
Why Should You Attend this Program?

Strengthen Your Network
Participants describe MIP's comprehensive course content as high quality and challenging, helping them better understand the mix of functions necessary for cooperative success. But they also stress how much they benefit from idea sharing and networking with their classmates from across the country. Thanks to comments like these, the agenda is enriched with group activities and exercises that support the national MIP and cooperative networks.

Apply Your Learning to add Value
As a participant, you will have the chance to apply what you've learned in two projects: 1) a small-group project, and 2) an individual project. The small-group project is started in Madison with your assigned colleagues and worked on in between your units and in Madison. The individual project is completed at home and is designed to benefit you and your organization through the application of concepts and tools gained in the classroom. Results of both projects will be shared with the class.


Who Should Participate

New CEOs/general managers, CFOs, COOs, vice presidents, and others in, or aspiring to, a co-op senior leadership role.

If you're not sure MIP is right for you, we invite you to take the Leadership Skills Assessment. Drawn from the Electric Cooperative Employee Competency models, our new Leadership Skills Assessment was designed to help you understand which of NRECA's supervisory, management and leadership courses and events may be most appropriate for you.
