Learn & Earn

This innovative program offers students the opportunity for hands-on learning before graduation and gives them access to professional networking connections within the workforce of their choice.

Learn & Earn at Malone is seeking organizational partners who are committed to recruiting and retaining new talent for our region's workforce while providing hands-on learning opportunities to students and minimizing out-of-pocket costs for students while they work their way through school.

Through a partnership between Malone University and external partners like the Hall of Fame Village or Fastenal Company, students can gain career-minded opportunities in the field while taking broader liberal arts courses at Malone and create networking connections that will make an impact on their early careers. Learn & Earn is open to students from all majors, with a particularly strong correlation to our Hospitality and Tourism, Business Management, Accounting, and Sport Management programs.

As part of this program, students will work in various roles within partner organizations, gaining experience in marketing, sales, customer relations, and other practical skills. They can work up to 29 hours a week for 40 weeks while attending classes on a schedule designed to facilitate participation in the Learn & Earn program.

At the end of each semester, partners can also make an additional contribution that will be put towards the student's bill for attendance. This is an excellent opportunity for students to gain valuable experience and earn money towards their education, while also allowing our partners to connect with talented and motivated individuals who are eager to contribute to the workforce.
