Internships

The academic areas of the Business Department offer Internships in three areas: Accounting, Business Management, and Office Technologies.

Internship experiences are set up for our graduating students--those who have successfully completed much of their program's coursework, called prerequisites, and a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA).

All internship experiences include weekly one-hour seminars, either in class or online, and 90 hours of work experience prior to the end of the semester. At the end of the semester, a portfolio is completed by each student. This is a compilation of the resume, employer references, examples of skill work, and research projects. The portfolio can be brought to interviews.
