Apple | Adam Schaffernoth

Adam Schaffernoth (MPP/MBA c/o 2023) interned with Apple during the summer of 2021 as part of his Technology Policy concentration. He supported the firm’s Strategic Sourcing team, which interfaces with Apple’s core component suppliers in China, India, and Southeast Asia. Adam’s summer project was to analyze the sourcing strategy for key Apple products, and to model the financial impact of that strategy on the various stakeholders in the supply chain. He presented his findings to leadership within Apple’s Procurement division, and received positive feedback on the quality of his analysis. Through his internship, Adam gained a practical understanding of international trade negotiations, as well as an appreciation for the economic and geopolitical forces that shape global supply chain sustainability.
