Description/Abstract

Academic internships are usually semester long for-credit courses related to a student’s field of study in which the student works in a company outside of the University environment under the supervision of a faculty mentor and a company representative. The benefits of such a course are the experience gained, the opportunity to acquire or improve upon skills, knowledge and abilities, and to apply learned concepts and methodologies in a “real-world” setting. By adding a research component to internships, business students would have a unique opportunity to identify a research problem in their chosen field and complete a research project.
