Internships are valuable resources for all students. For a student within the SIUE School of Business MMR Program, the opportunity to receive a corporate sponsored graduate internship as soon as you step through the door is a reality. These experiences provide an ideal blend of theoretical and analytical course work integrated with marketing research projects. Combined with the rigorous curriculum, these internships position SIUE MMR graduates as field-tested marketing research professionals, ready to make an immediate impact on the companies fortunate enough to recruit you.
A number of corporations and marketing research agencies provide the opportunity to gain valuable research experience for qualified MMR students. In addition, all internships include a complete tuition waiver and a generous stipend during the contract period.
"A well-established internship program provides students the opportunity to work with industry-leading partners while completing their formal education. The experience offers a street-level view of how research fits into the real world, teaches the importance of sound study design, and introduces the challenges of weaving research into the fabric of organizational decision-making. This is a win-win for students who have the opportunity to secure an internship. Students receive real-world experience with industry-leading partners who cover their tuition expenses and pay a monthly stipend."
