Work Learning Experiences: Internships & Co-ops
A formally approved Internship or Co-op experience is required of all Business Administration major students and may be taken as electives by students majoring in Accounting or BIS. All incoming Eastern students starting under the LAC in Fall 2008 and more recent must have a internship or co-op that qualifies as a Liberal Arts Woks experience.
Business Administration Internship Position Option:
The Business Administration Major Internship program consists of students working a total of 224 hours (i.e. 16 hours/week for 14 weeks) during the course of a semester, summer, or interim break at an unpaid position in a career field that relates to their career goal objective. The Department of Business Administration works closely with local and regional businesses, non-profit organizations and government agencies in lining up a number of different types of positions in a variety of organizations from which to interview and work.
The Business Administration Internship Program is administered by the Department of Business Administration [Webb Hall 423, University Assistant Karen Crowley firstname.lastname@example.org, (860) 465-4627]. Please feel free to schedule an appointment to discuss any business internship program questions.
Paid work positions relating to students’ career objectives are formally called “co-op” positions, which are administrated by the Office of Career Services located in Wood Support Services Building [2nd Floor – Room 239; email@example.com, (860) 465-4436].
If the paid “co-op” position is to be officially counted towards the Business Administration, Accounting or BIS majors, then close coordination and formal approval is required from the corresponding Department of Business Administration Internship Coordinator as well as that of the Office of Career Services. Feel free to contact the Department of Business Administration Office [Webb Hall 423 (860) 465-4627] with any co-op/internship coordination questions.
Note: Students minoring in BIS, Healthcare Informatics, or Social Informatics that engage in an information systems internship may do a BIS 490 internship and have it substituted as satisfying their major internship requirement such as BUS 490.
