Jobs and Internships
Internships, taken for credit or not-for-credit, provide you with the opportunity of valuable work experience in a wide variety of fields ranging from private, family-owned business to international corporations. An internship will give you the advantage of getting hands-on experience while also developing a network of contacts for the future. For many students, an internship is the the experience needed to land the first job after college. The School of Business can assist you in locating an internship that will complement your formal business education. Review our weekly Job & Internship Opportunities site.

Students are encouraged to study away for a J-term, a semester, or even a year. The School of Business frequently offers study away programs led by a business faculty member. Please contact us for information about upcoming J-term trips. Students planning to study away for a semester or longer should talk with the Wang Center to begin researching destinations as well as meet with the Undergraduate Advisor to discuss how your study away affects your academic plan.
Business scholarships are awarded annually to outstanding transfer and continuing business students. Most scholarships are awarded based on scholastic achievement and leadership skills. Other scholarships have more specific requirements.
