Internships and Experiential Learning

The Cameron School of Business encourages students to participate in internships. Internships focus on learning & provide students the opportunity to apply the knowledge they have acquired through their coursework, while gaining marketable skills through hands-on experience.

Most employers (87.2%) interviewed by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) said their new hires do have internship or co-op experiences.

If the job is approved, qualified students will be notified, and the matching can begin.
