This program, usually paid, is designed to give you practical business experience and academic credit at the same time. An internship usually requires full-time employment in a marketing position for at least one semester, often accomplished during the summer. During your employment, you will be able to apply theories, concepts, and strategies learned in your course work. Like many of our students, your internship may lead to a career with your sponsoring organization.
