IB 492 – Off-Campus Study

1-15 credit hour

Internships are a chance for students to gain hands-on experience in the business world, apply the knowledge learned in the classroom to real-world problems, and develop important professional skills. By participating in an internship, students gain a competitive advantage for future employment by providing meaningful work experience and an introduction to a potential career or employer. With an international internship, students can acquire and hone additional skills that range from language proficiency to intercultural communication. IB 492 is intended for any internship, regardless of business major, that occurs outside of the United States. Students must be engaged in rigorous, professionally applicable work that relates to their field of study, educational goals and/or career aspirations that can be transferred to other employment or academic settings. The hiring organization must provide the student with a supervisor that provides routine feedback. Students will be eligible for 1 credit hour per 50 hours worked. The student can only enroll in IB 492 for the academic term in which they are completing the internship.
