internships and careers


Learning outside of the classroom is vital, and Business Administration majors are required to complete a 240-hour internship in an organization. The internship must be taken sometime between the beginning of the second term of junior year and the end of the first term of senior year, but usually is completed over the summer before senior year. Students file weekly activity reports with a designated department faculty member, which serve as the basis for a written report presented at the Senior Seminar held in the fall semester, and of an internship review conducted by the Senior Seminar professor and the student.
