This event, The Insights & Analytics 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 this January and graduate the following December.  If you prefer to recruit at a later date, please let me know and we can set up a corporate presentation and interview schedule for another time period during the spring semester.

  • When:  January 23th, 2015 from 8:30am-5pm.  2016 is currently being planned.  For details, email
  • Where:  MSU Henry Center
