Why an Applied Experience?

Introduction to business careers, career development, educational options, and opportunities provided by the Craig School of Business. Emphasis on CSB requirements, resources, and expectations. Presentation of topics by faculty, staff, alumni, and business executives. CR/NC grading only.

Units: 1

We offer a Mentorship program which provides students with a great opportunity to explore different areas of business with a specially selected mentor from the local business community.

The Craig School Internship Program is different than a part time job. Unlike a part time job, a student receives academic credit upon completion of an Internship. Also, the Internship (designed by the student and employer) provides the student with a progressive learning and growth experience, rather than a repetitive activity which is usually associated with a part time job. From an employer’s perspective, an Internship is a great way to identify and attract prospective full time employees prior to their graduation. Employers can contact the Internship Program office to create internship opportunities for students.

Prerequisite: permission of internship coordinator. Requires 150 hours of work at a pre-qualified, academically-related work station (business, government or nonprofit agency). Reflective journal, final report, and work station evaluation. As a course substitution, prior department approval required. Only one internship may count towards option requirements. CR/NC grading only.

Units: 3, Repeatable up to 6 units
Course Typically Offered: Fall, Spring, Summer
