Following the first year of study, a limited number of internship opportunities may be available to qualified students enrolled in any of the Occupational Business programs. These courses may be taken to satisfy the “Elective(s)” requirement found in most programs. Generally, Business Internships will consist of supervised part-time work experience during the summer months. The actual number of Business Internship opportunities may vary considerably from year to year and, consequently, enrollment will be limited. However, students who are already employed or who are anticipating part-time employment should confer with their academic advisors and/or the Internship Coordinator to determine whether their work experience might qualify for Business Internship credit. In any event, the general requirements for all Internships are as follows: (1) the work experience must be closely related to the student’s major area of study; (2) the employer/supervisor at the place of employment must agree to participate in the training and evaluation phases of the internship; (3) the student must work a minimum number of clock hours for each Internship and complete whatever other projects are required by the coordinator; (4) the Internship must be approved by the Internship Coordinator.
