Victoria Byerley

Major: Marketing ’15

Victoria Byerley was beyond excited to have a six-month internship last year at her “absolutely favorite place in the world,” Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

Victoria was selected for a professional internship with Disney after she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in Marketing in May 2015. She worked closely with two Disney employees in the Theme Parks and Resorts Pricing.

Although Disney offers internships for college students to work in the park, this internship is a little different – all the participants in the professional internship are college graduates, and it is very difficult to get accepted into the program.

Victoria believes her involvement in the Student Government Association, Western Appeal A capella, the business fraternity Alpha Kappa Psi, the Craig School of Business Dean’s Advisory Council and serving as a student ambassador helped her obtain the Disney internship.

“It really helped me stand out against my peers, and the skills I learned at Missouri Western helped me with my internship.”
