Management and Marketing majors who are classified as juniors or seniors are eligible to enroll in MGT 4395 or MKT 4399 for three hours credit for approved internships.
The internship position must be approved by Mrs. Dietert. The postings on our website are pre-approved. If the internship is not posted on our website, the student must submit a job description on company letterhead. Responsibilities must be beyond the scope of the "average” part-time or temporary job. Internship credit is allowed only for students who secure approval for their internship prior to beginning work with their supervising company.
The internship must be scheduled for a minimum of 10 weeks and 200 job hours during the fall or spring semester or 8 weeks and 160 job hours during the summer. The internship may be either full-time or part-time.
It is the intern's responsibility to schedule his or her work hours around the class schedule. Special registration considerations are not provided.
Students may enroll in only three additional courses during a fall or spring internship or one additional course each session during a summer internship.
The internship may be either paid or non-paid. This will be determined by the student and the supervising company.
The student intern must submit all required reports in a timely manner to Mrs. Dietert:
