Internships

Internships are of most importance for students of the School of Management. Prospective employers, master's degree programs, and doctoral programs place great value on whether students have gained “real world” experience during their undergraduate years, which is why our School of Management works tirelessly to pair its students with the internships suited best for their career path.
