Michigan State University and the Broad College of Business understand that the recruiting process consists of stringent deadlines for both the employer and students. It is the University’s position that students make the best decisions when offered the opportunity to evaluate all of their options and seek appropriate couns

Employment Offer Guidelines

Renege Policy

A job acceptance is a major commitment to a new employer. Students should only make this type of commitment if they intend to honor it. Reneging is accepting a job offer from a second company while declining an already accepted job offer from the first company. This can severely damage a person’s reputation, not only in the short term, but also for the duration of a career. Reneging also has negative implications on the university’s relationships with the affected employer and can affect opportunities for other MSU students. The university does not sanction a renege situation on students’ parts for any reason. Students are encouraged to carefully review the reneging policy before accepting any job offers.

Renege Policy

Internship Expectations for Employers

When providing an internship to a Michigan State University student, either for credit or not credit, it is expected that employers adhere to Michigan State University’s internship expectations for employers.
