Michigan State University Broad College of Business students travel the world every year on internships. They gain valuable work experience and get an opportunity to make connections that can last a lifetime. For a snapshot of where some of our interns landed this summer and to gain insight into what they learned from the experience, see the interactive page below.

Maxwell Klitzke
BA Supply Chain Management
AFN Logistics - Niles, IL

“I have learned a great deal about the transportation industry and what it is like to work in a fast-paced, growing company environment. My favorite intern experience so far is being able to do meaningful work for AFN and being treated as a team member rather than just an intern.”

Kayla DeCook
BA Supply Chain Management
Hess Corp. - Houston, TX

“I have developed an appreciation for the amount of effort that goes into implementing lean principles in an organization, as well as the powerful and positive impact that they can yield. I have developed an appreciation for how critical it is to build standard processes and metric keeping, to track progress and accomplishments towards overall improvements.”

Dana Drouillard
BA Supply Chain Management
General Motors - Warren, MI

“Teamwork is key when working at such a large corporation as General Motors. I worked with people from different functions daily, learning how to communicate effectively and work efficiently with a diverse group of people.”

Landon Terzich
MBA Marketing
MAHLE Industries - Troy, MI

“I’ve learned the value of a penny. When moving extremely large amounts of inventory, it is imperative your pricing is spot on, down to the penny. This may seem axiomatic, but when you’re faced with an RFQ for millions of units for a relatively expensive product, it is crucial you’re not overpricing and losing the contract and large sums of revenue and not underpricing and losing large sums of revenue.”

Gaurav Jain
MBA Supply Chain Management
GAP - San Francisco, California

“The internship so far has been very enriching in terms of retail exposure. I am able to see the end-to-end flow of work and the impact that my work is making on the customers and the brand. As a part of my internship, I got to interact with the leadership team of GAP and Old Navy. Listening to their life and professional experiences has provided a new direction to my approach towards career building and life in general. ”

Lauren Walson
MS Accounting–Taxation
Deloitte - Detroit, MI

“I have learned about the services Deloitte offers within Advisory and, more specifically, the forensics and investigation services. I also learned how to work with a virtual team that is all over the U.S.”

Qian (Claire) Deng
MBA Finance
General Motors - Detroit, MI

“The auto industry is ripe for disruption. Technology-driven trends will revolutionize how auto industry players respond to changing consumer behavior, develop partnerships, and drive transformational change.”

Rob Spilman
BA Accounting
Stryker - Kalamazoo, MI

“I've learned about domestic and international tax compliance, transfer pricing strategy and foreign bank account reporting.”

Joel Kish
BA Finance
Stryker - Kalamazoo, MI

“I have been able to create my own project by simply bringing it up to someone, and it has allowed me to further educate myself and network more than I ever imagined I would. I've learned at Stryker how important the people you work with truly are. I've never worked with a group of people more dedicated to their work and dedicated to the people they work with.”

Lindsey McPherson
MS Business Analytics
Dijiwise - Auburn Hills, Michigan

“This allowed me to be a part many facets of the growing company. I learned with a hands-on approach about marketing, social media, blogging, budget, and analytics strategies. ”

Shannon Wong
BA Finance
General Mills - Minneapolis, MN

“My experience at General Mills taught me how to effectively communicate with global business partners. Working in the international segment, I found that terminology and business processes differ between regions, and it's critical to ask questions to help both myself and other partners understand the business.”

Jaztan Teen
BA Marketing
General Motors - Detroit, MI

“I now understand that it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been doing a certain job for or how proficient you are in your skillset - if you allow yourself to be completely open-minded and insightful, you’ll leave each meeting, conversation, or event with a one-of-a-kind experience.”

Megan McGill
BA Supply Chain Management
Ingersoll Rand - Davidson, NC

“The company is in the middle of a Lean transformation, so I have been able to experience all of the work that goes into training employees, standardizing processes, and initiating pull systems into the manufacturing sites. It’s not an easy process, but it is exciting to see results and find areas where new improvements can be made.”

Abby Andrews
BA Accounting
EY - New York, NY

“This internship experience was surreal. I was able to work on the client site for my entire internship and really see what it would be like to work in public accounting full-time in New York City. My favorite part of the internship was sitting in on client meetings and seeing how the walkthrough step of an audit is completed.”

Brittany Young
MBA Marketing
Kellogg - Battle Creek, MI

“I have learned how to analyze all the factors that affect target consumers throughout their day and how to understand their needs to be able to develop a successful product for them.”
