The Fogelman College of Business & Economics has a formal undergraduate and graduate
internship program, incorporating on-the-job learning in its academic environment.
Internship education provides students with the opportunity to supplement academic
instruction with practical, realistic job experience. This new opportunity will provide
qualified junior, senior, and graduate business students with various forms of job
experience in their academic major.
Internships increase the ability of the participating students to function effectively
once they enter the workforce, and to improve their opportunity to make a more accurate
decision about career choices. The total experience is coordinated and supervised
by the University and the cooperating firm. Our office operates as a resource in assisting
with the student's search for internship opportunities, but does not provide placement
Interns can be assigned short or long term projects or assist in the daily operations
of a department. Interns generally work 15 to 20 hours per week, depending on a company's
need. Most positions are paid at a rate determined by the participating company. Internships
are typically available for students in all majors in the Fogelman College.
