Internships

Internships are a hands-on approach to learning. College of Business and Economics students are encouraged to participate in internships to gain experience in business settings. Students will work for businesses or other organizations in their selected fields, experiencing valuable real-world situations. Internships may improve students’ marketability for their career job searches as well as providing opportunities to see if careers, industries, or even individual businesses are what the students were truly seeking.

Some internship experiences may count for credit towards graduation. Students should contact internship coordinators for their major fields to determine policies for internship credit, including prerequisites.

Each department within the College of Business and Economics has an internship coordinator. For more information on internships specific to a particular degree, please contact:
