MSU business students to offer FREE consulting to businesses and non-profits during Fall 2014 semester

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 fall semester.  During the courses, students will help manage special projects requested by area businesses and non-profit organizations.

Past projects included

  • developing business, marketing and financial plans
  • identifying ways to improve businesses
  • suggesting solutions to problems and
  • re-branding businesses

Students developed websites and social networking sites, market and competition analysis, sales analysis, feasibility studies, assisted with human resource and customer service issues, developed employee training and handbooks and other business and management processes.

The college also recently launched Student Entrepreneurs in Action.  As part of the new program, local businesses and organizations may apply to host an unpaid college intern.  Interns will work 10 to 20 hours per week for the business or organization.

Interested businesses and organizations may apply to the Jake Jabs College of Business and Entrepreneurship by August 1.  Contact Gary Bishop for an application for either program.
