Interpship

Internship

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.

 

Prerequisites: Declaration of Business Administration as a major, completion of one upper-division course in your option, 2.5 GPA, permission of internship coordinator.

 

Requirements: 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. 

 

Units: 3, Repeatable up to 6 units. Only one internship may count towards option requirements.

 

Grading:  CR/NC only (credit/no credit)

 

Course Typically Offered: Fall, Spring, Summer

 

Mentorship

Mentorship

We offer a Mentorship Program (CSB 150, Strategies for Success) which provides students with a great opportunity to explore different areas of business with a specially selected mentor from the local business community.  A mentorship differs from an internship; it is based solely on an advisory capacity and friendly guidance relationship by the employer to the student; instead of a working relationship where the student is obligated to contribute to the employer in daily or weekly work tasks, while also being trained in new skill sets.  A mentor is an experienced and trusted person who gives another person advice and help, especially related to work and school, over a period of time.  Mentorship activities are developed collaboratively between the student and their mentor; based on the needs of the student.  Mentors receive satisfaction from the opportunity to help others achieve their career goals; and the chance to give back to the university and community by developing successful students.  Mentorship is an experience of discovery. It is an opportunity for a first chance of exposure to a field of their interest, and exclusive access to a professional to talk with one-on-one. 

 

Prerequisites: The Mentorship Program at Craig School of Business is open to all pre-business, business major, and business minor, registered students.

 

Requirements:  Several milestones of accountability are required to successfully benefit from the program; a minimum of 8 hours of contact time with a mentor (total) over a semester; a Student Learning and Development  Plan sheet; Mentorship Agreement form, Mentorship Activity Log, Reflective Summary of a Brief Related Story, and a Final Summary Sheet.  In addition, the student will have two scheduled brief meetings with the program coordinator; these will be an update meeting at the mid-semester; and a final summary meeting at the end of the semester.

 

Units: 1 (credit is awarded only one time; students can participate in mentorship in multiple semesters in a subsequent non-enrolled basis)

 

Grading:  CR/NC only (credit/no credit)

 

Course Typically Offered: Fall, Spring (permission numbers for enrollment are issued only by the program coordinator)
