Hire MCAD Talent

When you work
with MCAD talent,
everyone benefits.

MCAD Balcony

MCAD students and alumni are highly accomplished makers and scholars that bring valuable, sought-after skills to any organization or company. From their rigorous MCAD education, they are also equity-minded problem solvers; critical, conceptual thinkers; and inclusive, collaborative partners.

Hire an Intern

Internships are academic learning experiences where students work under the mentorship of an experienced professional. Your special projects and internships provide valuable real-world experience to prepare students for professional life. 

Working on-site or remotely, students apply their skills to real-world projects while learning about your industry, enhancing their skills, networking, and building their portfolios. In turn, you get the benefit of the fresh perspective, energy, and creativity of an MCAD student.

Internships are coordinated through MCAD Career Development. Contact us at 612.874.3796 or careers@mcad.edu.
