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.

In order to highlight both our interns and the businesses where they are working, the Broad College asks our partners to gather images of our interns on location.

Intern Experiences

Carrie Blair (Hospitality Business)

Madison Mallards Baseball

"I was able to learn what it takes to truly provide an outstanding game day experience for our fans while also developing my leadership capabilities. On top of it all, I was a part of the company rebranding which allowed me to branch out of my comfort zone and work in ballpark operations, marketing, and merchandise."

Noah Duren (M.S. Business Data Science and Analytics)

Stryker: Emergency Care Division

"My favorite part was getting the chance to do an in-person office visit to Redmond, Washington. I live in Michigan and my internship has been primarily remote but Stryker flew me out to see the offices and manufacturing plant."

Reilly Cannaday (Finance)

Greenwich Capital Group

"My favorite part of interning at Greenwich Capital Group was the openness of senior leadership to have 1-on-1 coffee chats and the opportunity to hear about how they started and rapidly grew this business."

Pankaj Sanodiya (MBA)

Kearney

"My favorite experience was visiting one of the client’s logistics warehouses and learning how a warehouse efficiently operates 100M+ case packages annually amidst several supply chain challenges in this COVID era."

Madison Packer (Human Resource Management)

Ally Financial

"HR has way more opportunity than I had thought! I was exposed to all the different areas within HR and within each and every meeting, I learned of a new job. HR is evolving by the day and I am beyond excited to be entering into this field."

Simone Nagi (Supply Chain Management)

Goldman Sachs

"I learned about my strengths and weakness, the importance of networking and what I enjoy working on and what I don’t!"

Vincent Pucillo (Marketing)

PepsiCo

Haley Tran (Hospitality Business)

LPL Financial

"As a PR Intern, I have learned so much beyond the capacity of my work. Aside from enhancing my business communications skills, I have gained a deeper understanding into the financial services and asset management industry — how broker-dealers and financial advisors operate."

Andy Whitaker (MBA)

Deloitte

"One of the many lessons I learned at Deloitte is that organization and flexibility are not mutually exclusive traits. In fact, learning how to be organized in my internal responsibilities is what allowed me to be flexible and adapt to new external challenges every day. Having an organized sense of self as my foundation provided me the opportunity to make smarter, faster decisions while maintaining the same level of quality work that is to be expected from a Broad MBA."
"I learned that as an intern, the projects you work on are important and can help the firm, so it is crucial to ask questions, research and take time to complete the project to the best of your ability. When you take the time to execute well, it will benefit both you and the firm!"
Kendall Carlin, Finance

Marques Moore (MBA)

Johnson & Johnson

"My favorite experience about my internship was the experiential learning. Although my internship was spent in an HR leadership development program, it did not feel as if I was in HR. For the summer I worked in the workforce analytics business unit and my summer project was very data focused."

Linsey Nichols (Hospitality Business)

The Walt Disney Company: Walt Disney World Resort

"If there is anything I have learned from my time at Disney, it’s that guests drive the experience. If you have purpose and pride in what you do, providing an excellent guest experience will come naturally."

Kendall Carlin (Finance)

Girls Who Invest Summer Intesive Program and Royal Bank of Canada

"I learned that as an intern, the projects you work on are important and can help the firm, so it is crucial to ask questions, research and take time to complete the project to the best of your ability. When you take the time to execute well, it will benefit both you and the firm!"

Julie Liu (Supply Chain Management)

PepsiCo

"My favorite experience has been visiting the Frito-Lay plant and seeing how my favorite salty snacks are produced and even being able to taste them right off the line! I also had the incredible opportunity to meet Steven Williams, the CEO of PepsiCo Foods North America, and talk to the senior leadership of a global company."

Tyler Dahms (Hospitality Business)

Whitetail Club

"Working almost entirely outside in beautiful McCall, Idaho, being able to experience working at a club, and even having the opportunities to preview other departments has made this venture all worth the while!"

Morgan Rodgers (Accounting)

Arthur J. Gallagher

"I learned extensively about the insurance industry and consulting. Throughout the summer, I worked alongside a mentor and was able to participate in client-facing meetings with her team. Even though I was technically a sales intern, I was also able to work closely with the financial analyst on my team and shadow leaders in the retirement practice."

I was immediately thrown into the action and could get to work, from taking an event inquiry, to planning and booking, to running the event and billing the group. I cannot wait to go back next summer!"
"I learned that saying 'yes' goes a long way. As a tax intern, I was exposed to work that I did not know of prior to the internship. Challenging myself to take on projects of unfamiliarity was focal in helping widen my learning curve as the internship progressed."
Mwaba Musonda, Accounting

“I learned the several different stages of managing a client's personal portfolio and the significance of staying disciplined when maintaining an individual's investment policy. I realized how important it is to understand the client’s emotions during large financial life events as they play a huge role in making decisions. Witnessing this career first-hand gave me a new perspective of what a day in the life of an advisor means. I really enjoyed my internship and am so lucky to have been given this opportunity! Thanks to the Grand Rapids team for making my summer so memorable!”
