Consider a Business Internship Experience
Juniors and seniors in the John L. Grove College of Business, who are in good academic standing, are eligible to participate in the Business Internship Program. Interns do major-related work in business or the professions for free elective credit during the academic year or during the summer. An internship is defined as a semester-long, supervised work experience related to a student's major or career goal for which the student earns academic credit. The work experience may be part-time or full-time and may be paid or unpaid.
Internships must be approved by the department chair and internship director. Credit earned through the internship program may only be used as a free elective credit and may not be used as a substitute for major course requirements.
Benefits of internship include applying academic knowledge and skills to on-the-job experiences, communicating and interacting with professionals in the world of work, developing professional self-confidence, clarifying career goals through exposure to a variety of career opportunities, earning money for university and personal expenses, building a network of professional contacts, completing free elective credits for graduation, and returning to the university with renewed interest and a new perspective on learning.
Understanding the complexities of today's business environment requires much more than classroom knowledge. Without question, work experience, coupled with a college degree, is needed to survive in a dynamic workplace.
Shippensburg University has long recognized the need to prepare its students with more than academic knowledge and skills. Since 1972, the College of Business has offered a Business Internship Program (BIP) that adds practical work experience to student classroom preparation. Students earn credit toward their degrees for an internship experience. (A maximum of nine credits can be earned through the internship program.)
