How to start a Business internship

Do you want to gain professional experience, earn school credit, and receive a paycheck? An internship can help you accomplish all three!

What you need to know:  

  • Internships are available to Juniors and Seniors  
  • Credits count toward upper division electives 
  • 1 credit = 45 internship hours
  • 3 credits = 135 internship hours  
  • 6 credits = 270 internship hours
  • 9 credits = 400 internship hours (requires special approval)
  • The course is online and consists of bi-weekly journals and five assignments to be completed by the end of the semester; workload is manageable so you can fully experience the internship
  • Internships can be located anywhere
  • Offered Fall, Spring, and Summer in 8-16 week options
  • Students must pay for the internship as they would any other class. (i.e. a three-credit hour internship costs the same as a three-credit class; and a nine-credit hour internship is equal to the cost of three, three-credit hour classes).

Students can reach out to the internship coordinator with any questions about the program or if they would like more information about the program.
