Interns at Dell are all given background information and then given a research project to work on for their team, which they get to present at the end of their internship to high-up executives at Dell. As an intern, you will work on internal and external research, the knowledge for which will be primarily gathered through meetings and individual 1:1s with people at Dell (1:1s are considered a culture- everyone does it, not just the interns). You should expect very little oversight and plan on asking lots of questions.
Dell have a 2 day intern kick off assimilation program. The speakers are senior leaders representing from different business units. It would be a good idea for the interns to be interactive and ask as many questions as possible. There's a session by finance talking about how to manage your finance as you start earning, that's an interesting session.
