Students will engage in a work experience with organizations in a wide variety of fields. The experience is designed to be relevant to the student’s academic pursuits, personal development, and professional preparation. The internship is a substantive career development experience and provides students with the opportunity to gain experience in workplace settings and to translate classroom learning into practice. The intent is for the student to be exposed to business ideas and concepts while being mentored. Doing analysis, contributing to decisions, and communicating meaningful ideas should form the bulk of the work, although some low skill work (for example, data entry and making phone calls) can be a part of the assignment. At the end of the internship experience, students will be able to reflect on their personal and professional growth and begin seeing themselves on their career path.
