Every business major completes an internship as a graduation requirement. This practical, hands-on work, strengthens resumes, confirms career interests, and often leads to full-time jobs. Most internships are well paid. Students can earn up to four units of academic credit. A majority of internships are completed in the summer but some occur during the school year. For more details, see Internship Instructions and Internship Pre-Approval Form.
