Good internships are good business.

Internships provide students with the opportunity to gain real-world experience in settings outside the classroom. They are structured work experiences ill which the student adds value to the organization and develops key business skills. Today's workload and tomorrow's workforce are two great reasons for starting an internship program for your bank.

MBA InternConnect is to provide a path for top college students to explore the Missouri banking industry as a viable career option. MBA believes an internship experience creates the opportunity for students to gain specific knowledge about banking processes while learning how local banks help their communities. The desired end result involves students returning to campuses with positive impressions of banking and the strong desire to pursue careers in banking upon graduation.
