"I learned about the internships through career fairs on campus, as well as talking with College of Business and Security Management alumni. Then, at events like the Business Leader of the Year, I was able to network directly with people from BP. I think BP is one of the companies in Alaska that really cares about hiring students from UAF. BP notices the students coming out of the UAF MBA program are staying in Alaska and they’re excelling. You do have an advantage if you come from UAF."
