Internships provide on-the-job learning, an opportunity to apply classroom knowledge to "real world" situations, and a means to evaluate career options. They also are a distinguishing resume entry important to many employers.
Students in every field of study -- economics, accounting, forensic accounting, financial services, marketing, management information systems, management or any area within Comprehensive Business Administration -- can benefit from an internship. A student can secure an internship in an array of business functions at many commercial firms, government agencies, and institutions in the region.
To be eligible for an internship, a student must have earned 60 credits with a minimum of 15 of those credits taken at Edinboro University and including a minimum of 9 credit hours in upper-level (310 or above) courses in the student's concentration. A Q.P.A. of at least 2.6 in his/her major and 2.4 overall is required. Only Free Electives credits are used for internships.
Students should discuss internship options with their academic advisor and with a Department internship coordinator at least a full semester BEFORE they plan to take an internship. Internship materials and a referral to an appropriate internship supervisor can be obtained in the Department Office (215B Hendricks Hall). An extensive list of internship opportunities is available for students to review in the Department Office. Additional information may be found in the department's Internship Policy & Procedures.

Successful internships depend on both the intern and the internship site. Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and the School of Business recognize the commitment internship sites make in accepting an intern and appreciate the contribution they make to the career preparation of our students. Internship sites typically ask several questions:
Who can be an intern?
When will the intern work?
Are interns paid?
How do I get an intern?
What are my responsibilities once I have selected an intern?
What are the intern's responsibilities?
What interaction will there be with the Business & Economics Department?
Please see our internship hosting site web page for answers to these questions.
