When Marketing students have an opportunity to work at business organizations, the firms often call these positions "internships," regardless of whether they are part-time, full-time, paid or non-paid work experiences. Students can earn credit for working on site at an organization for a specified number of hours during the summer by enrolling in our Marketing Internship (MKTG 494) course.
No matter what a business firm calls its work program for students, students wishing 3 hours credit in MKTG 494 - Marketing Internship must meet the following standards:
Enrollment into the MKTG 494 online summer course must be approved by the Marketing Department’s Internship Coordinator, Dr. Kyle A. Huggins <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Applications for the class must be filled out online using the Marketing Internship Approval Request Form. Before applying, all assignments are outlined in the Internship Syllabus. If the request form is approved, then you will get an email from Tammy Mendyk, the ASC marketing liaison, indicating that you have been approved for an override into the summer MKTG 494 class. It will then be your responsibility, as the student, to enroll for the MKTG 494 class during open summer registration through MyMadison. Registration for this class is allowed up until the first day of class, at which time, class registration will be closed. As for finding an internship, all current and known internships are posted on Recruit-A-Duke. It is up to you, the student, to find and secure the summer internship of your choice that will incorporate your marketing skills.
Please contact the marketing internship coordinator, if you have questions:
