Consider hiring and mentoring a Sprott MBA Intern this summer.

Published At: 2015-04-07 09:59 -

Would your organization benefit from assistance in the areas of marketing, research, finance or accounting? Do you have a great idea that never gets researched or implemented? Consider hiring and mentoring a Sprott MBA Intern this summer.

Sprott MBA Interns are academically strong candidates with:

  • High motivation and energy
  • Proven capability to learn new concepts quickly
  • Exposure to current analytic frameworks
  • High demand skills including problem solving, communication and teamwork
  • Courses in management functions and foundations including leadership essentials

Internship Requirements

  • Minimum 480 hours – 14  weeks @ 35 hours per week
  • Responsibility for delivery of an appropriate level of project or business process.

There is flexibility in what constitutes appropriate intern duties and responsibilities. Sprott MBAs are a diverse group with undergraduate degrees in a range of fields including Science, Engineering, Business, Art and Law.

Compensation

Volunteer (unpaid) internships are acceptable because MBA students receive academic credit for their work. Some students prioritize organizational fit over compensation, and are willing to take unpaid positions for valuable work experience. While compensation is not the primary focus of the internship, it is an important component of an organization’s value proposition.

To Learn More

Our information sessions are a great way to meet motivated Sprott MBA candidates who may fit your needs. If you would like to post an internship opportunity or present to our students at one of our on-campus information sessions please contact:

Google Translate Now Does Real-Time Voice And Sign Translations On Mobile

Published At: 2015-01-16 11:50 -

Google Translate is already a hugely useful app for anyone who lives overseas or travels regularly, and it just got even smarter on mobile. A new update to the Android and iOS appsthat is rolling out today introduces two very spiffy features: real-time voice and sign translation.

The app has already offered image-based translation, but now the magic occurs without any delay at all… and — best of all for regular travelers — it works offline.

The visual translation feature is activated when you select the phone camera option inside the app. You then simply point the camera at the sign that you want translated — ensuring that it is captured fully — and the app will translate it.

Real-time voice translation is equally incredible, and can act as an intermediary for two people holding a conversation using different languages.

You tap the in-app mic once and starting talking in the foreign tongue first. Then — once the first language has been recognized — tap the mic again and both people can begin talking. The app pulls in text-based translations of both sides of the conversation in real-time, helping overcome the language barrier.

Voice translation has been a feature on Google Translate for Android for some time, but now it is coming to iOS and will also be “faster and more natural” on Android, Google says.

The sole caveat is that these instant translation features are somewhat limited at first. They only work for English to and from French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish, but Google said it has plans to expand support with time.

Interestingly, the company also threw out some new stats about the popularity of Translate. It claimed that 500 million people use the service in some form each month, with more than one billion translations made per day.

Those figures are quite incredible and — with two hugely useful new features now up and running on both iOS and Android — Google Translate is likely to grow into even more of a monster hit.

Update: As some readers have pointed out, this impressive technology is powered by World Lens, a startup that Google bought last year. Credit where it is due.
