Internships not only provide real world experience, they provide an opportunity to explore career choices and develop professional contacts, easing the transition from school to workplace. The department is a member of the Institute for Management Studies, which coordinates student internship placements. The Institute for Management Studies has its own Coordinator of Internships, whose responsibility is to help match students to the internship opportunities that are best for them.
Through the Business 439 Practicum, students have the opportunity to intern with a wide variety of businesses, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations in the surrounding area. Sponsors include the Chamber of Commerce, banks, brokerage firms, professional sports teams, manufacturing firms, private businesses, health care facilities, and others. Summer internships in major metropolitan areas throughout the Northeast are coordinated each year.
