Internship

Welcome to Internship!

 

At the Department of Business and Economics the Internship course is required for graduation.  Internship is a great way for students to get relevant job experience while gaining college credit.  The internship process is unique at the Department of Business and Economics because there is a designated staff member to help you.  Internships are offered in a 3 credit hour format, which is 150 hours of work or a 6 credit hour, which is 300 hours of work.  The internship will help you to connect your previous skills and educational background to a business work experience.  The internship and your coursework will go hand in hand and will allow you to experience what working in your potential field will look like.  Internships are chosen for each student individually and all start with an email to set up an appointment.
