This semester, 16 University of Missouri and Trulaske College of Business undergraduate students are directing their time, attention and talents to help four small-to-medium sized companies based in Missouri and Kansas grow their sales internationally. The MU International Trade Center internship offers students hands-on data analysis, project management, presentation experience, and real-world insights into global trade. The goal of the program is to promote economic development and aid in the international decision-making of Missouri businesses while providing MU students opportunities for experiential learning.

Companies working with the MU International Trade Center this semester include:

  • Healium (Columbia, MO) – developer of an immersive meditation tool with supporting neurofeedback used to train the user's body to stress less and sleep more.
  • MK Machining (Hallsville, MO) – a 3D-printing company with specialized additive manufacturing capabilities that can be used as an alternative to injection molding.
  • Rebundle (St. Louis, MO) – developer of a first-of-its-kind sustainable and non-toxic plant-based braiding hair extensions.
  • SEVO IFP (Lenexa, KS) – designer, developer, installer and servicer of environmentally friendly fire suppression systems used to protect high-value assets inside mission-critical applications, i.e. data centers, aircraft hangars, power generation facilities, etc.
