We believe the experiential learning and professional development opportunities you will get from a student internship (are) an essential part of learning how to apply what you’ve learned in the classroom.
That’s why we require Byrum School of Business students to complete at least one summer or semester-based internship. But why stop there? Many of our students complete two or three internship placements earning a total of up to nine academic credits.
