College of Business Administration Receives Grant to Support Student Career Service Efforts

KENT, Ohio - May 8, 2014 - PRLog -- Kent State University is one of 21 schools to receive an Ohio Means Internships and Co-ops (OMIC) Grant from the Ohio Board of Regents, and a portion of that money will go to the College of Business Administration’s Career Services Office.

The grant is awarded to colleges and universities around the state to help them create new or expand their co-op or internship programs.

This is the second year Kent State has been the recipient of this, totaling  approximately $700,000 to use through 2016 throughout Kent State, with the College of Business Administration receiving approximately $173,000.

Kristin Williams, director of the College of Business Administration Career Services Office, said the office will use the funds to support a salary match program and to expand the infrastructure of the office. She said she would like to hire a career education advisor to help prepare students for the employment and internship process.

“We have a starting commitment for an additional 42 internships for the college and we’ll continue to develop opportunities throughout the life of the grant,” Williams said.

This grant is part of Governor John Kasich’s strategy to align Ohio’s higher education curriculum with skills that are in demand, positioning students for jobs upon graduation.
