Internship Program

The Management Development Center (MDC) is seeking businesses interested in providing  internship employment opportunities for College of Business and Entrepreneurship (COBE) students at Fort Hays State University.  Thanks to a generous donation from the Dane G. Hansen Foundation and Peter and Pamela Werth, businesses can hire a student intern at a significantly reduced cost through this program.
Internship opportunities are available in the areas of accounting, management information systems, finance, business communications, human resources, economics, operations management, marketing, tourism and hospitality, computer networking and web design.

Funding is limited, so businesses and students will be selected through a competitive selection process. Priority will be given to Northwest Kansas businesses or individuals who are in the start-up process or in their first 1-3 years of business; however, all businesses are welcome to apply!

Interns for Fall 2015 are currently being interviewed for placement.  Business applications and information for Spring 2016 internships will be available October 2015.


For $500, businesses can utilize a college intern for 15 hours per week for 16 weeks (fall academic semester). The first payment ($250 deposit) for fall student interns will be due early September.  The second payment will be due early November (remaining $250).  A single payment of $500 is optional.

Fort Hays State University will facilitate student employment.  Student applicants will be screened by the MDC Director and Internship Coordinator with each business making the final selection on the student intern.
