By Luke Longfield – As springtime approaches, many Jewell business students are engaged in various internships around the greater Kansas City area. Last summer, Jewell business student Scott Buffa held an internship with LSA Portfolio Analytics based in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. LSA Portfolio Analytics provides independent investment advisors around the country with investment research, analytics, model portfolios and other practice-management services.
This spring Scott landed another internship with LSA and is joined by senior business major Jeff Cunningham. The two are currently working with the social media and marketing areas of the firm. Since beginning in February, Jeff and Scott have created social media accounts, posted for blogs concerning LSA Portfolio Analytics and monitored and maintained the Facebook and Twitter accounts for LSA. They have also worked on updating the company website and mobile device application.
The Jewell Business internship program provides a win-win opportunity for students seeking hands-on, experiential education and for employers seeking bright, motivated workers. For more information, contact Dr. Kelli Schutte, Chair of the Department of Business and Leadership.
