Jabs Hands-On

Our college is looking for YOUR help to better support our students through real-world, out-of-the-classroom educational opportunities. These educational activities allow students to gain unique experiences like preparing taxes in native Alaskan villages, competing and excelling in competitions against students from schools across the country, or attending the national conference for their student organization’s chapter. These opportunities become a competitive edge on their resumes and provide actual experience that better prepare them for future careers.

 

Here are examples of some student experiences that monies from this fund will help support:

 

2019 AMA group photo

Airfare for members of the American Marketing Association chapter to attend and compete at the AMA International Collegiate Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. This is a Top 20 chapter out of over 380 chapters world-wide. Last year, 15 students from MSU participated in 13 competitions and received recognition in nine, including two first place awards. The 2020 MSU case competition team was recently notified that they have made the finals and will present in New Orleans in March. ($600/student)

 

Members of the MSU AIBL chapter

Registration for members of our American Indigenous Business Leadership (AIBL) Chapter to attend the AIBL national conference in April 2020. This is a brand new student organization and AIBL is the only American Indigenous non-profit organization solely dedicated to empowering business students in the United States. ($150/student, 8 students = $1,200)

 

Students participating in the faculty-led London trip

Airfare from Bozeman to London, England for our summer faculty-led study abroad experience. This is a three-credit class in the spring with travel that summer. "I really enjoyed going on this trip, especially as an accounting major. Before this trip, I didn't have any experience with marketing, so the program gave me the opportunity to think in a completely different way. Having this experience will help me to better understand how businesses create and sell new products to consumers," Eric Lundgren. ($1,000/student)

 

Students participating in our Alaska VITA program

Airfare from Bozeman to Alaska for Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program"This was a transformative experience and incredible adventure for which I am immensely grateful for. This enriching volunteer experience has given me new friendships, an abundance of hilarious and meaningful memories I will cherish forever, and a deeper appreciation for tax," Miranda Koski. ($600/student)

 

Students and faculty in New York City

Airfare from Bozeman to New York City for students in our American Financial Institutions class. "I know my peers would agree with me when I say that the NYC trip was one of the most valuable experiences that I had in college. It provided the opportunity to apply coursework in a real-world setting and not only learn about many ofthe most prestigious financial instituions, but also visit them in-person," Will Cronk (landed an internship and now works full-time at Blackstone) ($1,000/student)

 

Our goal of $5,000 would cover registration for 8 AIBL student participants, airfare for 2 AMA student competitors, airfare for a student to travel to London, a student to travel to Alaska, and a student to visit New York City.
