Internships and Careers

While the career paths for each of our areas of study holds different opportunities, the one thing they all share is that they are fields in high demand, with booming growth in jobs and salaries.


We're Dedicated to Helping You Strategize Your Career

Due to strong relationships with top companies in our area, many of our students participate in paid internships their junior and senior years. Our Kansas City location means that premier employers often join us on campus to interact with students, answer questions and explain their companies. Our alumni are employed nationally and internationally at large and small companies alike.

In addition, to ensure students are finding the internships and jobs they desire, we have some helpful resources.

If you're an employer looking to connect with students, please contact Marjory Eisenman, assistant dean of student affairs.

Career fairs

We partner with the Henry W. Bloch School of Management to host career fairs in September and February. Many local and regional employers attend to meet students to fill internships and jobs.
