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.

- 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.
