Internship Information 

Internships can enhance your resume and job prospects and, in some cases, can be taken for academic credit. Even though internship experiences are highly encouraged by each COB department, internships are not a graduation requirement.  It is strongly recommend that students pursue an internship for a number of reasons:

  • An internship provides you with the opportunity to determine if your major is right for you.
  • An internship allows you to apply your classroom experiences to practical scenarios.
  • An internship can lead to an offer from a firm for an entry-level position after graduation.
  • An internship gives you practical experience when interviewing for entry-level positions.
  • An internship can build your confidence.
  • An internship for credit can act as an elective course to fulfill requirements for your major.

For more information on internship opportunities, contact the relevant program coordinator listed below.  Note:  Economics, Management, and Marketing are the only COB departments that award academic credit for internship experiences.
