Helping Management Students Find Jobs
Management faculty take a personal interest in helping students find
professional employment. We work with the University’s Career
Services Center during the annual career fair and host a special reception
for companies interested in hiring Management students. To help prepare
students for the job-search process, we integrate career assessment exercises
into the management curriculum and strongly support for-credit and non-credit internships.

Internships and Jobs
To find high-quality internships and positions, students can:
- Check the walls outside The Bracken Center, 457 Reid Hall
- Check The Bracken Center internship book
- Check and register with Career Services - SUB 125
- Participate in the College of Business "Meet the Recruiters Night" - evening before MSU Career Fair
Research consistently shows that undertaking an internship as an undergraduate significantly improves chances of finding a good job upon graduation. The College's internship program through the Bracken Center allows a student to earn course credit and gain valuable experience while working in a business environment. Internships are particularly valuable to Management students because managerial competence deepens while actively experiencing a true work environment. Students can undertake such an internship during the semester in addition to taking classes, or they can devote a summer or an entire semester to an internship.
Graduate School Preparation
Alumni report that a degree in Business with a Management option from MSU provides
excellent preparation for graduate studies, and a number
of students go on to earn master’s degrees in Business Administration.
Since most top graduate programs require work experience as a condition
of admission, we strongly encourage students to work for a minimum of
two years before pursuing graduate education.
