Internships are very valuable experiences for our MIS students, and we strongly encourage
all our students to apply for internships while they are in our program, especially
those students who do not have work experience that is related to the MIS area. Experience
as an intern involved in information systems/technology activities provides students
with additional knowledge of this area as well as greater understanding of the breadth
and depth of potential job activities involving the MIS field.
How do I get started?
Students are responsible for taking the initiative to apply for an internship. Our
University has an internship director, as does our Fogelman College of Business &
Economics (FCBE), and our MIS Department. These three units work together to let students
know of relevant internship opportunities. Our MIS website includes a location for
students to upload their own resumés as well as to view MIS-related internship opportunities
received from elsewhere in the University or directly from an external organization.
This information typically includes desired skills and knowledge as well as instructions
for indicating your interest. Some employers want students to contact them directly,
while others do not, so it is important that you read and follow the application process
What if I want to receive academic credit for the internship?
Students who want academic credit in MIS for an internship must apply for the credit
before starting the internship. Initial approvals are required from the FCBE internship
director, followed by approvals from the MIS Department. The details of the entire
process of earning academic credit can be found on a separate internship document.
