MBA Internships

Diverse Real-World Experiences with Business Leaders and Entrepreneurs

MBA students gain hands-on experience in coursework that involves researching solutions, solving complex problems and applying critical thinking in areas such as business proposals, marketing plans, and financial reports. But students also learn about their chosen field through MBA internships and faculty-led research projects.

Earning course credit, students work as management consultants with local companies for a semester-long engagement conducting market research, analysis and customer discovery. This greatly benefits the business and the student is able to work on advanced projects such as assisting a company to commercialize a technology or work directly with engineers to develop cost projections on design changes. Florida Tech students have often secured jobs with the company once projects like these are completed and they've demonstrated their skills and acumen to the company executives.

Visiting Executive Program - Through the Visiting Executive Program, students expand on the experience of MBA internships with an opportunity to interact with business leaders and successful entrepreneurs. Through class lecture, mentoring and public talks, students gain first-hand knowledge of how to become effective leaders. Florida Tech students have heard from speakers such as Dick Beeson, CEO of Colgate; Thomas Folliard, Jr., CEO of CarMax and Florida Tech alumnus; and Debbie Harvey, COO of Ron John Surf Shops.

Capstone Strategy Course - In addition to MBA internships, Florida Tech business administration students take part in a comprehensive capstone strategy course that requires industry and company research. Working with faculty mentors, students link academics and business practices in the workplace through presentations and publications.

Student Business Incubator - Students who showcase innovative business ideas may access the Student Business Incubator at the Nathan M. Bisk College of Business. This program provides necessary resources and guidance to nurture student business ideas into real business ventures.

Conferences & Competitions

Outside of research and MBA internships, conferences and competitions gives students another way to gain real-world skills. This includes:

  • Florida Venture Forum Annual Intercollegiate Business Plan Competition
  • International Conference of Industry
  • Engineering & Management Systems
  • Intercollegiate Case Competitions
  • Corporate-Sponsored Competitions (such as the American National Gas Alliance)
  • Florida Tech Business Hackathon – a 3-day event where students create solutions for global issues in healthcare, education and the military.

Florida Tech has demonstrated much success at these events:

  • An MBA student-led team was awarded second place in the 2012 America's National Gas Alliance Collegiate Energy Challenge for their integrated marketing campaign that educated and informed the community about natural gas.
  • A Florida Tech MBA student has won the Financial Executive International's Medallion for Distinguished Scholar from 2010 – 2013.

Research, MBA internships and competitions allow business administration majors gain relevant experience and make connections with potential future employers.

Make Contacts in a Club or Organization

Clubs and organizations give students another outlet to enhance their experience in graduate school. Phi Kappa Phi and Delta Mu Delta, both national honor societies, forge connections between business students and seek to recognize academic excellence. Other clubs include Florida International Talkers and Toastmaster's Club, Student Investment Club, The National Society of Leadership and Success and many other unique organizations.

By creating networking opportunities for MBA students, as well as management internships, these clubs and organizations give students opportunities to create life-long networks with like-minded individuals.
