College of Business seeks area businesses and non-profits to participate in consultation classes
Montana State University’s College of Business is seeking local and regional businesses and non-profit organizations that would be 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.” 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, website and social networking development, sales analysis, feasibility studies and helping with human resources and customer service issues, developing employee training and handbooks, plus many more business and management processes.
The MSU College of Business is taking applications from companies that may want to participate in either of these courses during the spring 2012 semester, which runs from Jan. 11-May 4. All types of businesses and organizations are encouraged to apply. For more information, contact Bishop at 994-7017 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
