          Internships

          Hands-on, real-world experience is hard to beat. Edinboro University recognizes that experiential learning is a valuable tool in helping students to make career decisions and in complementing formal classroom learning.

          Providing excellent internship opportunities is a priority for the University, and the stories of student success in the workplace have been overwhelming. Edinboro Business and Economics students have interned at Securities and Exchange Commission, Defense Finance Administration, Great Lakes Case and Cabinet, Erie Redevelopment Authority, Internal Revenue Service, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Bethesda Children’s Home, Summit Financial Advisors and many other businesses and organizations.

          Many students elect to pursue an internship to augment their educational portfolio. Every major has one or more designated internship directors to assist students with identifying opportunities and coordinating credits.

          Students who are interested in internship experiences are encouraged to contact the Business and Economics Department internship coordinator, or visit the Center for Career Development’s internship webpages for more information.
