What is an Internship?
“An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.”
-National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE)
The College of Business encourages students to engage in internships to expand their awareness in their major field of study and gain real world experience.
An internship consists of a short-term relationship (150-200 hours) in which the employer provides a student with exposure to their field of study through work experience, training, supervision and feedback. Internships can be done for experience, credit and pay.
