Please read all steps carefully before enrolling in BUSX 460.
The deadline to submit internships for approval for fall 2019 is Aug. 14 at 3 p.m.
In order to enroll, students must meet the following criteria:
Keep in mind the BUSX 460 internship requirements when conducting your search. 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.
International students must contact the International Student and Scholar Office prior to beginning this process to ensure that they are aware of all permit requirements.
Each semester, the College of Business and Economics hosts career fairs for employers to recruit students for internships as well as ful-time jobs.
The college also hosts professional development events, which can be great opportunities to network with local business leaders.
This e-newsletter distributed every Wednesday by the Student Academic and Career Services Office provides a listing of available approved internships among other important info for students. Not receiving CBE CONNECT? Contact BUSX staff at busx AT_TOWSON.
Take advantage of the Career Center where you can meet with a counselor, practice interviewing, get resume advice and more. The Career Center also hosts several career fairs, event and on-campus interviewing with employers recruiting events throughout the year, which are all posted in Handshake.
