Internship Program

The Management Internship Program provides students with an experiential learning opportunity. Internships provide students with the opportunity to apply "theory" in the dynamic environment of an organization. Through the participating companies, students achieve professional work experience under the mentoring of managerial practitioners and faculty.


Students in the Management Internship Program must participate in several seminars conducted by the assigned Internship faculty. Additionally, students must complete a minimum of 150 hours (10 hours per week for 15 weeks, the length of the semester) working at a host organization. Students desiring to work beyond the 150-hour minimum must have the approval of the individual's Academic Advisor, Internship Coordinator, and Host Organization Supervisor.


Students may apply the credits earned in the Internship course as one of the required electives in within the Management, Financial, Accounting, Marketing or MIS disciplines.


The Management Internship Coordinator, or other faculty designee, serves as the assigned faculty for the internship course during a specific semester.
