The internship in the Business program is an advanced course and is expected to be taken in the second year of study. Students apply the principles, procedures, and rules learned in Introduction to Business, Principles of Management, and courses from a specific Business Management degree option. The work setting can be a public, private, or nonprofit organization appropriate to the degree option being pursued. Students record the tasks performed in their notebooks, which the various work supervisors and faculty sponsors review periodically to assure that appropriate competencies are developed or reinforced. Based on state guidelines, students must complete 40 hours of work for each credit hour in this course. NOTE: Internship hours are arranged so as to award 3.0 to 4.5 credit hours for successful completion.
