As its primary purpose, a College of Business internship can give you the opportunity to gain experience and training in your major field of study by working for a business or other organization while still enrolled in a degree program. An internship gives you valuable insights regarding the types of work you may perform after graduation and helps you make a decision on a long-term career path. You'll also gain experience in interviewing, résumé preparation, working with teams, and community involvement. Ultimately, the internship program benefits students, employers, and the College of Business.
Internships can be obtained both for college credit or not for credit. To be eligible for college credit, you must be a College of Business undergraduate or graduate student. Undergraduates who have completed a junior level class in the discipline of the internship are eligible for the internship, subject to the approval of the Director of Career Development Center. (Non-business students earning a minor in business cannot receive internship credit towards their minor coursework.)
