State Farm has developed a unique internship opportunity for graduate students at the University of Georgia (UGA) – the Modeling and Analytics Graduate Network (MAGNet). MAGNet interns apply their statistical modeling and analytic skills to a wide variety of business problems faced by the State Farm organization.

Graduate students in highly quantitative disciplines are considered, with an emphasis on understanding of statistical techniques. While participating in the MAGNet program, students are evaluated and given consideration for full time, post-graduate employment at various State Farm locations: Atlanta, GA; Bloomington, IL; Phoenix, AZ, or Dallas, TX.

What’s In It For You:
MAGNet is similar to a 50% graduate assistantship offered by the University. It is a multi-semester program. Interns receive hourly pay comparable to that offered by the University for graduate assistants as well as full tuition assistance for the duration of the internship. Some State Farm benefits may also apply, including the following:
• 401k retirement plan
• Medical, dental, and vision insurance
• Paid time off, including specific leave for community service

Please note: This is a hybrid internship in Athens, GA and relocation assistance is not offered.

MAGNet interns apply their predictive modeling and data analysis skills to a variety of data science problems, in many different lines of business and departments (e.g., marketing, insurance, and process optimization) including:
• Pricing and Underwriting Risk Predictive Modeling
• Claims Automation Predictive Modeling
• Sales/Growth Forecasting, Econometric and Predictive Modeling
• Data mining applications for Claims and Competitive Analysis
• Evaluating new statistical methods and tools for potential use by State Farm data scientists

What You Can Expect:
• Logistics:
o Hours: During Summer Semester, MAGNet interns work 38.75 hours per week
o Duration: Summer Semester (5/14/2024 to 7/31/2024)
