About MIS Internship

About | Available Internship | College Internship | University Internship | Testing

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 resum├ęs 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 they specify.

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.
