Montana State University’s Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship is seeking local and regional businesses and non-profit organizations that are willing to offer students practical business experience in return for research, issue analysis or operational advice during the upcoming spring semester, which runs from January 13 - April 29. Applications are due by January 6, 2016.

Participating students will be enrolled in “BMGT 463—Entrepreneurial Experience” or “BMGT 475R – Management Experience.” Both are senior-level courses primarily focused on new start-up organizations or small, locally owned businesses. The management experience course focuses on more established businesses, as well as civic and non-profit organizations.

Businesses and organizations that wish to participate in the spring are invited to apply to the MSU Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship. Applications are due by Wednesday, January 6.

In addition, the college has an internship program known as Student Entrepreneurs in Action. As part of the program, local businesses and organizations may apply to host a college intern from the program to work with the business or organization for 10 to 20 hours per week. In some instances, the student may work with the business or organization at no cost.
