Internship Program

The Hill and Levene Schools of Business, in partnership with Mitacs, is pleased to offer the Business Strategy Internship Program (BSI). This four-month internship program is designed to give business students the opportunity to work for an organization on the organization’s innovation activities. This program directly aligns with our School’s aim of providing experiential education opportunities to our students as it directly connects our undergraduate and graduate students with non-profits and small-medium businesses with up to 50 employees in Regina’s business community.

Mitacs is a national not-for-profit organization that designs and delivers research and training programs in Canada. For 20 years, Mitacs has worked with over 65 universities and academic institutions, thousands of companies, and federal and provincial governments to build partnerships that support talent development and deployment.
