College of Business Internships
Students may earn academic credit while completing an internship if they qualify to enroll concurrently in our upper division internship experience course, BUS 498. Most of our concentration pathways allow BUS 498 as one of the upper division elective choices, combined with an appropriate internship. We recommend developing your learning plan to incorporate an internship for academic credit.
If you need special approval to count BUS 498 as one of your upper division business electives, meet with your faculty concentration advisor.
Make sure you meet any BUS 498 prerequisites. To earn academic credit you must have junior or senior standing.
