University of Colorado Colorado Springs: College of Business

Career and Placement

For Employers


Internships provide a solid foundation for students in their career pursuits and allow them to gain valuable knowledge. Within the College of Business, undergraduate juniors and seniors and MBA students may participate in an internship to gain more experience. The internship can be for-credit or not-for-credit, arranged through the Career & Placement Center. Internships may be paid or unpaid, depending on the business's wishes. The for-credit internship usually serves as a business elective and must be approved through the College. Workload must enhance the intern's emphasis area and provide a challenging learning environment. The internship can be completed for 1-3 credit hours.

The program offers synergistic benefits for all parties involved. The College of Business faculty encourage enrollment and strongly advocate participation in the internship experience with businesses in the Colorado Springs area. As part of its quality improvement effort, the Career & Placement Office values the comments and evaluations from both students and employers who have taken part in the program and actively solicits suggestions for future change.
