Mitacs Business Strategy Internship (MBSI) program


Haskayne School of Business has partnered with Mitacs to offer the Mitacs Business Strategy Internship (MBSI) program. The program will award $10,000-15,000 of funding to each interested and eligible undergraduate and graduate student selected to undertake an innovation project (4-month full-time or 6-month part-time) with a business or a municipality. The partner organization will contribute $5,000-7,500 (plus applicable taxes) and Mitacs will contribute the remaining $5,000-7,500.

Students will complete innovation-based projects aimed at improving products and services, processes, or the organization as a whole, while gaining hands-on experience and contributing to the business landscape.
