Participation in Internships is strongly encouraged for all Business Administration and Accounting students.
Through University-arranged internships, students earn academic credit (often a salary as well) for working and learning on campus, or with business and nonprofit organizations in the community. While students will earn academic credit for participating in an internship, this credit cannot be used to satisfy any Business Administration or Accounting major or minor degree requirements. Internships are taken on a pass-fail basis. Internships are arranged with the help of the Internship Coordinator, Brent Hussin, who may be contacted at 465-2575 or email@example.com. Interested students should start seeking information at the end of their sophomore year and plan accordingly.
Students interested in receiving credit for a Business Administration internship must have declared a Business Administration major or minor, and have an overall G.P.A. of at least 2.50. As a general guideline, a 3-credit internship would be a position requiring a minimum of 10 hours of work per week.
Students interested in receiving credit for an accounting internship must have declared an Accounting major or minor, completed and passed ACCTG 301, Intermediate Accounting, and have an overall G.P.A. of at least 2.75. A maximum of six credits can be earned toward accounting internships. Students may not receive internship credits for the same position in multiple semesters. As a general guideline, a 3-credit internship would be a position requiring a minimum of 10 hours of work per week.
