Business Internships

It’s as easy as 1,2,3!

  1. Talk to the Business Internship Coordinator or your Counselor to decide when in your college career you should participate in an internship.
  2. Enroll in and pass Workplace Professionalism (BUS-162).
    • Workplace Professionalism is a 3 s.h. course that is a prerequisite to Business Internships ~ it can be taken at any time prior to a Business Internship.
  3. Upon passing Workplace Professionalism, the student is eligible for a Business Internship (BUS-225).
    • Students may register for a Business Internship only when they have located, secured and have had the internship site approved with the Business Internship Coordinator.
    • Business Internship credit ranges from 1 s.h. to 5 s.h. ~ this must be determined prior to registering for the course.

All students are highly encouraged to participate in a Business Internship before graduating.
