This innovative course focuses on a successful transition from classroom to career.
All students complete an internship while enrolled in the course. Through self-assessment,
you'll develop a portfolio that demonstrates your knowledge, skills and attitudes
as well as a commitment to lifelong career development.
About the Course
BUSX 460 is required for all business administration, accounting and e-business majors
and is typically taken during your senior year. For this course, you are required
to complete a 120-hour internship in a professional setting. Students meet as a class
seven times throughout the semester to participate in reflective exercises, hear from
guest speakers and develop a portfolio.
It is important that you start this process early by submitting your application to
several openings. Don’t apply to just one internship and hope that it will work out
with that company. Be proactive! Take advantage of the numerous university and college
resources available to assist you in your search. Also, keep in mind the BUSX 460 internship requirements when conducting your search.
Each semester, the College of Business and Economics hosts events that not only provide a wealth of information on professional development, but serve
as a great opportunity to network with local business leaders.
Distributed by the college, the Career & Internship e-Newsletter provides a listing
of available internships. Not receiving the Career e-Newsletter? Contact Lisa Michocki

TU Career Center
Students should also use the TU Career Center as a resource. Students can meet with Career Center counselors or use the Hire@TU database to find internships.
The Business Excellence staff are available to discuss additional ways to find internships.
