Fall Analytics and Insights Career Exploration Event

Every year, the MS in Business Analytics and Marketing Research programs at Michigan State University host an annual conference that focuses on the growing field of big data analysis, consumer insights and how it is shaping the future. Events include a career fair, networking and access to admissions professionals regarding the master’s programs at MSU.  We encourage students to attend this event to find out more about the exciting field of analytics–both for career opportunities and/or as a learning opportunity of how it is changing the way we do business and the growing need for analytics professionals. Students from across campus and program levels will be in attendance (Example: MS Business Analytics, MS Marketing Research, MBA students, undergraduates focusing on statistics, economics, computer programming, data science, actuarial science etc).  Thank you to all that attended to help make this event a successful experience for all involved.

When:  September 13th, 1:30 pm – 4:00 pm

Where: MSU Spartan Stadium Huntington Club

Spring Internship Fair

The Analytics  & Insights Internship Fair, features exclusively two MSU programs: the MS in Business Analytics and MS in Marketing Research. This fair is designed to be an intimate event with only employers specifically looking to recruit interns for the upcoming summer. Approximately 75 students attend from these two programs seeking internships with the possibility of a few December graduates who may be looking for full-time opportunities.

Background information:  The summer internship experience is a required component of our programs and thus you will find this a very engaged, talented student audience to recruit from. Students from both programs begin their studies in January and graduate the following December. If you prefer to recruit at a later date, please let us know and we can set up a corporate presentation and interview schedule for another time period during the spring semester.  For questions or additional details, please email
