Connecting Business with Students

Students walking in building

While your business adapts to ever-changing economic challenges and opportunities, students at the Seidman College of Business are diving deep in their learning about business trends and strategies. They bring a fresh perspective to modern business. We are passionate about connecting our students with community businesses, bringing you today's top talent, while providing our students opportunities to bring their skills and education to the table to serve and grow. We offer connection to our students through internships, consulting projects, paid freelance work, and bro bono freelance work.

Secure the next generation of talent for your internship opportunity! The GVSU Career Center uses Handshake as a powerful online resource, directly connecting GVSU students and alumni to top employers and career resources. 


Consulting Projects

Trying to wrap your head around your next big marketing project or budget proposal? Our students are prepared to apply the latest in business theory to real-world problems.

Consulting projects can be of varying lengths, and can be done with one student or a team of students. They will be reviewed on a rolling basis and individuals/teams assigned to projects in response to the needs of sponsoring organizations. 

Freelance Work

Looking to add talent to your team without the full-time commitment? Consider freelance work options for assistance with more project-based tasks that can be completed in 25 hours or less. Examples are outlining a social media campaign, creating a marketing flyer, creating a video or developing a logo.

  • Pro Bono Opportunities: for small companies (fewer than 25 employees) that may lack resources to pay for freelance work
  • Paid Work Opportunities: for larger companies with resources to pay students for their skills

Seidman College of Business majors include Accounting, Business Economics, Economics, Finance, International Business, Entrepreneurship, General Management, Human Resources Management, Management Information Systems, Operations Management, Supply Chain Management and Marketing.
