Get involved in benefiting Denver business
Engaging with the University of Colorado Denver Business School makes sense for regional businesses, large and small. And with opportunities available to organizations and individuals, the Business School offers many ways to connect.
Connect with students
Find an intern
If you are interested in hiring an intern, the Business School can help you find the perfect student for the position. Internships can be structured to provide class credit, pay and credit, or pay without credit.
Host a site visit
Inviting students to your business gives them an idea of what you do and allows them to learn about your business. Share first-hand knowledge of what it is like to work in your industry.
A site visit can encompass an office or plant tour, an information session about your business and the industry, or even just lunch. These visits can be organized in many ways to fit your schedule and goals.
We will work to find student groups interested in your industry. Contact Malena Brohm at 303-315-8002 about hosting a site visit.
Allow a student to shadow you
Serious students jump at an opportunity to shadow people in their prospective industry. It’s an excellent way to help them make real-world contacts and get an in-depth understanding of your business.

Mentor a student
At its core, mentoring is giving advice. This can grow into a relationship that lasts a lifetime, beginning with a simple conversation about what it is like to work in your field and how to get started.
A mentor helps a student learn essential keys to success that come from actual experience in the field. As a mentor, you help students understand what they need to do to accomplish career goals, find a job, hit the ground running, negotiate office politics and ultimately succeed.
Contact Malena Brohm at 303-315-8002 about becoming a mentor.
Become a guest speaker
By offering your expertise, stories from the trenches, and even the day-to-day requirements of your job, you help students see the practical application of what they are learning. Guest speakers round out lectures and in the process students learn about local businesses.
We will be glad to pair you with an appropriate class or club. Contact Malena Brohm at 303-315-8002 about becoming a guest speaker.
