Business Administration Senior Kylie Shade spent last summer interning for Maryland state government as part of the Governor's Summer Internship Program (GSIP). Kylie was placed at the Office of Small Business Regulatory Assistance within the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation.Kylie Schade

"I learned about how state government works, how a professional office runs, and how much regulations affect small businesses. Over the course of the summer, groups of four developed policy papers based on pressing Maryland issues. From that, I learned how to write a policy paper and present it to the governor's staff." says Kylie.

She learned about the Governor's Summer Internship Program through a friend who works for the state of Maryland. The GSIP is part of the Maryland Public Service Scholars Program which provides "students across Maryland the opportunity to develop as future leaders in Maryland’s public and social sectors."

Kylie describes a typical week during the internship as shadowing coworkers, attending outreach events, and becoming familiar with the Executive Order that created the unit that she worked in. "Everyone had different experiences," says Kylie "although, no fellow was ever the coffee person."  On Fridays, GSIP fellows take field trips; Kylie visited the State House in Annapolis and the White House in Washington D.C.

Applications for the GSIP are accepted in the spring for the following summer. The application process includes an application form, one essay, four short answer responses, a resume, unofficial transcripts, and two references. More about the application process, eligibility, and requirements can be found on the GSIP website.

After her internship, Kylie was offered a part time job at the Office of Small Business Regulatory Assistance and works there now. "Other fellows were also offered positions too" says Kyle, "This internship is also an amazing resume-booster. Employers, especially in government are impressed with a student who had this experience. I have had multiple job offers since completing this program."

When asked why she thinks other Stevenson students should apply for this internship, Kylie says "Networking! I cannot emphasize this aspect enough! I have met so many wonderful people, that I still stay in touch with, through this internship."

Congrats Kylie! And thank you for sharing your experience!

 

Business Administration major Iliyan Slavov will begin a semester-long Program Management internship with the World Trade Center Institute on January 30th, 2019. Iliyan was also the recipient of the Geraldine and Sam Dell Scholarship Award in April 2018. He will graduate in May 2019.Iliyan Slavov

Slavov credits his professors at the Brown School of Business and Leadership with assisting him with obtaining the internship. "...they help us build our paths based off their experience, wisdom, and observations about us. In my case, Dr. Leather who is my advisor mentioned the WTCI a couple of times since we started talking about possible internships during the winter of 2018" he said.

To apply for the internship, Iliyan submitted his resume, a cover letter, and answered some short questions before landing an interview in December 2018, and was notified in January 2019 that he was accepted.

As a Program Management intern, Iliyan will be assisting the Manager of the EDGE Program and Client Services and the Assistant Manager of Operations and Program Support. The EDGE program is WTCI's Emerging and Developing Global Executive Program which has a mission "to cultivate a group of emerging global executives in Baltimore who will ultimately contribute to greater success and growth for Baltimore area international businesses" according to the WTCI website.

Iliyan will also be performing research and analysis on Maryland’s top international companies/industries and strategic alliances, as well as researching potential new sources of revenue for the EDGE program.

"I am very thankful to Dr. Leather - she and I worked closely on this internship application - for all of her help, support, and confidence in me. Also, I am super excited to start this new chapter of my life!" says Iliyan.

Congratulations Iliyan!

Winter Commencement 2018

 

 

On Friday, December 7, the Brown School of Business and Leadership held its Third Annual Student Showcase on the third floor of the business school. The Showcase featured Accounting, Information Systems, Business Administration, and Marketing students' projects, posters, videos, video games, and internship experiences. 

Barbara Rowell, Chair of the Accounting department, stated “The Showcase gives students an opportunity to present their research, project, or internship to other students, the faculty, administrators, and employers and also gives employers an opportunity to see the high level of work our students can produce.”

Dr. Alan Carswell, Chair of the Information Systems department, said the event is "an outstanding example of how Stevenson University extends learning activities beyond the classroom." Information Systems projects include mobile apps, video games, and social platforms. Art Fifer, Assistant Professor of Information Systems also had a display for mission trips to New Orleans. "Stevenson students, faculty, and staff have been traveling to New Orleans for ten years. Initially our trips were to help the community recover from the devastation from Hurricane Katrina. In these travels we have made many close friends and relationships with organizations, none more important than the friendship and relationship with St. Mary’s Academy. Thirty-two of us provided 65 additional and newer computers, recycled over 500 old dilapidated laptop computers ... and repaired the Academy’s servers which had failed over Christmas and made them functional again." said Fifer.

Dr. Zamira Simkins, Chair of the Business Administration department said "The event is a showcase of our students’ curricular and co-curricular achievements. For example, Annaliese Rutishauser presented about her internship with Northrop Grumman. Annaliese will be joining Northrop Grumman upon her graduation this December."

Dr. Takisha Toler, faculty lead for Marketing, was excited to share the results of a study conducted by her MKT 307 Market Research class. "My students examined the impact of Alcohol Brand Mentions in Music on the Consumption Patterns of  Consumers". Dr. Toler's MKT 311- Consumer Behavior class also provided the results of research they conducted and made recommendations for market segmentation expansion for major companies.

Other examples of student projects included:

  • First Year Seminar personal branding presentations
  • Details of social media marketing campaigns by MKT 320 Social Media Marketing students that included content and engagement strategies, advertising, and analytics
  • Interactive games developed in Python by IS 240 Programming Concepts students
  • Inside look at internships with an accounting firm, a technology firm, and an insurance company

The event was well attended by students, faculty, administrators, and guests as you can see from the photos below!
