The department operates a very successful internship program at the undergraduate level. Students are selected in a competitive manner to participate with cooperating organizations in a semester-long project.
Participants are placed in participating organizations from both the public and private sectors under the direct supervision of an executive of the participating organization. Students must consult on a scheduled basis with a faculty member. A report based on his/her learning experience must be prepared and approved by both the faculty member and the supervising executive.
Many students find their real world internship experience helps them decide on which aspect of finance or economics they would like to pursue as a career path. It is a beneficial experience for both the participating organization and student.
As interns, students are required to spend a minimum of 120 hours over a fifteen week period working on project(s) of the company’s choice, although the projects are first proposed and reviewed by the finance department supervising faculty member. Interns must keep a daily log of their work experiences and assignments as well as engage in periodic reports to the faculty advisor.
The experience and knowledge acquired through the internship is immeasurable. More than half of the interns have gone on to full-time employment developed directly from their internship experience.
