Ness School of Management and Economics Internships
Students in the Ness School of Management and Economics are encouraged but not required to complete an internship. Completing multiple internships may be recommended. Students may earn up to 6 credits for internships. Internships may be completed anytime during a student’s academic program. While internships may be completed during the fall or spring semesters, most are completed during the summer term.
There are many advantages to completing an internship. Students gain professional experience, have a low-risk opportunity to explore a career option and ideally will receive an offer of permanent employment. An internship experience can be valuable and stimulating. It provides professional growth and development by building on your academic training to prepare you for a rewarding career.
Steps to complete when looking at different internship opportunities:
