Most firms will start having networking events and info sessions on campus in the fall to meet first year MBA students before they apply for the summer internship (between yr. 1 and 2 of MBA).
Application deadlines vary by school, but they are typically in November or December for MBA students.
From there, interviews are typically in January-February. Some firms (MBB and a few others) allow PhD students to apply for this internship as well and timing is similar.
For 2020-21 deadlines, see this page.
