Business plan help available for Montana businesses - The College of Business at Montana State University Billings

January 13, 2009View for printing

Senior students in the College of Business at Montana State University Billings are looking for business owners who need business plans, a project that will not only add value to area businesses, but will provide valuable educational experience for students.

The project is an ongoing endeavor by Dr. Tom Hinthorne, professor of management at the MSU Billings College of Business, to help students and businesses in the area. Hinthorne said that students in his Management 488: Business Strategy class use the experience to put their classroom theory into practice and showcase their talents.


The students will not incur costs on behalf of the business. If the students travel outside the Billings area at the request of the business, the business will be billed for the students' travel expenses at state rates.

For more information on how to request a business plan, please call Hinthorne at 406-657-2099; fax him at 406-657-2327; or e-mail him at

In addition, those interested in having a business plan developed should provide a brief history of the business and explain where you would like to see the business in 5-10 years.
