Graduate Assistantships

A graduate assistantship (GA) is a wonderful opportunity to work with various departments within the College of Business and Economics (COBE), or anywhere on campus, while working toward a graduate degree. COBE graduate assistants will work in one or more areas which may include:

  • Academic research and support for faculty
  • Tutor undergraduate students
  • Teach undergraduate classes
  • Support for event coordination and/or marketing COBE through the Graduate Business Studies Office
  • Support the efforts of one of our centers for business help

Information about COBE GAs


March 1 Deadline: COBE offers a limited number of  GA positions for students enrolled in the Career Track MBA Program (Boise State’s full-time MBA program). To be eligible to accept an award, candidates must start the application process by March 1.


The GA waives all tuition and fees and pays a stipend of approximately $11,000 for the academic year, and requires 20 hours work per week throughout the semester. Contracts are not automatically renewed, but students may apply for a second year.
