Businesses Needed for Participation in MSU Management Consulting Courses
Montana State University’s College of Business (CoB) is seeking local and regional businesses as well as not-for-profit organizations, willing to offer management students practical business experience during the upcoming spring semester in return for research, issue analysis or operational advice.
Participating students will be enrolled in “Management 475—Management Practicum” or “Management 463—The Entrepreneurial Experience.” Gary Bishop, an adjunct instructor of management teaches both senior-level courses. These courses have been a successful part of the CoB curriculum for more than 15 year.
During the four-month course, students will help manage special consulting projects requested by area for-profit and non-profit businesses and organizations. Past projects have included developing business, marketing and financial plans; business plans; identifying ways to improve businesses; suggesting solutions to problems; re-branding businesses; market and competition analysis; sales analysis; feasibility studies; and assisting with human resources and customer service issues.
The CoB is accepting applications from companies that may want to participate in either of these courses during the spring 2010 semester, at no cost to the company or organization; which begins January 13 and ends May 7. All types of businesses are encouraged to apply. For more information, contact Bishop at 994-7017 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
