  • Internships

    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. This gives students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths. It also gives employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.

    Students pursue internships because they want to gain professional experience that links their academic coursework to the disciplines they want to pursue for their careers. To gain this experience, students want to engage in projects and tasks that contribute to the professional work of the  organization. This means that the employer does benefit from the work of the intern while, at the same time, it provides a meaningful experience that allows for the application of academic knowledge.

    Required criteria

    To ensure that an experience-whether it is a traditional internship or one conducted remotely or virtually-is educational, and thus eligible to be considered a legitimate internship by the NACE (National Association of Colleges and Employers) definition, all the following criteria must be met:

    • The experience must be an extension of the classroom: a learning experience that provides for applying the knowledge gained in the classroom. It must not be simply to advance the operations of the employer or be the work that a regular employee would routinely perform.
    • The skills or knowledge learned must be transferable to other employment settings.
    • The experience has a defined beginning, end, and a job description with desired qualifications.
    • There are clearly defined learning objectives/goals related to the professional goals of the student's academic coursework. 
    • There is supervision by a professional with expertise and educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.
    • There is routine feedback by the experienced supervisor.  
    • There are resources, equipment, and facilities provided by the host employer that support learning objectives/goals.

    Compensation and Credit

    All internships in the College of Business are paid internships. The Director of Career Services can assist you in determining the appropriate pay rate for the type of intern that's right for your business In addition to pay, internship credit is an option for all declared majors in the College of Business. Each major discipline allows students to earn credit for an internship experience along with additional academic work upon meeting specific major field class pre-requisites. A 3.0 GPA and junior class standing is required. However, not all students choose to earn credit as each discipline counts the internship credits differently; some can count as major field electives and some as general electives. If the student has already met that credit requirement, they often choose not to earn credit for the internship. If a student chooses to earn credit for their internship opportunity, the duties must be of a significant nature and a position description must be approved by the academic faculty. In addition, the employer must sign a University Internship Agreement.
