It is strongly recommended that students pursue an internship, as they provide valuable work experience, enhance your resume and further your job prospects. In some cases, they can even earn you academic credit. Even though each major encourages them for a number of reasons, they are not a graduation requirement.

An internship:

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

Note: Economics, Management, and Marketing are the only CoB departments that award academic credit for internship experiences.
