Management Classes Seek Area Businesses and Non-profits For Consultation
Montana State University’s College of Business (CoB) is seeking local and regional businesses and non-profit organizations that would be willing to offer management students practical business experience during the upcoming fall and spring semesters 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.” Both courses are senior-level courses taught by Gary Bishop, an adjunct instructor of management.
During the four-month courses, students will help manage special consulting projects requested by area businesses and non-profit organizations. Past projects have included developing business, marketing and financial plans; identifying ways to improve businesses; suggesting solutions to problems; re-branding businesses; market and competition analysis; web site development, social networking, sales analysis; feasibility studies and helping with human resources and customer service issues.
The CoB is taking applications from companies that may want to participate in either of these courses during the fall 2010 and spring 2011 semesters, which run from August 30-December 17 and January 12-May7. All types of businesses and organizations are encouraged to apply. For more information, contact Bishop at 994-7017 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
