Putting business skills to use at the Rocky Mountain Senior Games

Portrait of Lucas Edwards
Lucas Edwards, Early Career MBA student

It’s 90 degrees at noon and Lucas Edwards is filming octogenarians throwing javelins. The Early Career MBA student spent his summer interning with the Rocky Mountain Senior Games, helping shape their marketing strategy and produce content for use across their website and social media.

“As a graduate student they really look to me to not just kind of learn from them, but to really help to benefit the program,” said Lucas. “I saw the ECMBA as an opportunity to really broaden my horizons if you will and not pigeonhole myself to one specific category, and so far it’s been a great learning experience.”

Working closely with counselors in the Career Management Center, 100 percent of the 2016 ECMBA class was placed in internships. From working in sales at a Fortune 500 company to serving in marketing and supply chain positions around the world, students gained valuable insights into the ways they could use their degrees after graduation.
