How to start a Business internship

The first step to applying for an internship is to search for a company or position that is related to the student's degree or concentration.  The next step is to meet with the internship coordinator.

  • Students are responsible for finding a company with which to intern. Their internship must relate to their degree and concentration. 
  • The internship can be in Grand Junction, or it can be anywhere throughout the nation, or, in some cases, the world.
  • A student can do an internship during the Spring, Summer, or Fall semester.
  • 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.
