In the Walton MBA program, we encourage our students to stay active and engaged in the business world through internships, which provide our students valuable insight into the inner workings of the business world and allow students to apply what they have learned from classroom settings to real-time interactions. Internships are a valuable source for connections and networking which are beneficial to students and their careers. 

Several of our students earned internships with the companies noted below: 

  • Ali Goforth received an internship with Mars Company, an industry leader in confectionery and pet food. 
  • Nicola Bryan received an internship with Paradox Retail, a marketing agency based in Rogers, Arkansas. Paradox markets brands such as Red Bull and Harry’s.
