What do the most successful businesses have in common? We’ll give you a hint: The answer is centered on technology. Leveraging technology to help humans and solve business challenges is what tomorrow needs. Simply put, a business degree with a foundation of science, technology, engineering, and math is a better business degree because it better prepares students for the high-tech business environment.
Accreditation is a sign of quality. Every few years the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), an external agency, investigates everything the Michigan Tech College of Business is doing to help prepare you as a business leader, ensuring we’re using the highest-level of best practices. In addition, your future employers recognize the accreditation symbol, as do your professors, who know accredited institutions can reward top-tier faculty.
Yes! In fact, we have more than 50 sponsored scholarships exclusively for business students. These are designated funds that alumni, friends, and industry partners have set aside just for business Huskies. Bonus: Most require no extra application or essay. Interested?

For incoming Michigan Tech business students who reside outside of Michigan, there is the opportunity to earn the National Business Scholars Award.
Some of the most important experiences you’ll have as a Tech business student will happen outside of the classroom. We encourage all Michigan Tech business students to:
Recognizing a need to support students with the soft skills necessary to thrive in the job market and in their future career, the Professional Blueprint was created to offer programming and incentives as business Huskies complete various essential career-building steps.
In the Michigan Tech College of Business, we don’t expect high school seniors or new college students to have their entire life figured out (intimidating, right?!). If you know you are passionate about business, but haven’t settled on a specific branch, no worries! By selecting the General Business option, you will take a core set of business courses (required for any of our business-focused majors) and get a chance to “try before you buy” a major or perhaps dual majors–without wasting time or tuition dollars. Then, after up to three semesters, you can make a more informed decision about which business major feels right for your strengths and goals.
Your classes will range in size, on average, between 12 and 30 students.
No teaching assistants here! Get the information you need to be the business leader you want to be from our faculty who received their training from other top-tier institutions. Many also have had impressive careers in industry, so they can provide a real-world perspective to the course content.
There are multiple pathways toward landing your dream business internship or co-op. One of the best ways is to utilize your relationships with your professors. They know you and your goals and can help connect you with their professional networks. Be sure to attend their open office hours to discuss further. And, check your inbox regularly. Your academic advisor will send a regular dispatch of employment opportunities that flow their way.
Another great avenue toward an internship or co-op is to join a business-oriented club or organization. Oftentimes the groups will have travel opportunities for you to visit various firms in person and meet the hiring leaders yourself. You can get a feel for company culture first hand and learn about job openings right then and there.
Throughout the year the College of Business will host successful business leaders, many of whom are Tech alumni. Make a point to attend these events and be engaged. Our guest speakers and alumni are committed to helping Huskies and want to see you succeed. Talk to them about internships and co-ops they may be aware of or have connections to.
A more traditional approach to internship or co-op placement is to attend Michigan Tech Career Fairs. These are held annually and are some of the biggest in the entire country. Whether you are looking for premier tech firms like Tesla or Apple or unique startups in more remote locations, we have it all represented and they want to hire you! Join our Professional Blueprint to help leverage the moment and set yourself up for success.
