While pursuing a degree within the Harmon College of Business and Professional Studies, you have the opportunity to earn academic credit and real-world business experience. The Harmon College Internship Office can help you find internship opportunities to apply for, and facilitates the internship course to challenge you to apply classroom knowledge directly in your internship.
Social media is the quickest way to stay up-to- date with the internship opportunities our office finds. You may also visit the office to discuss other opportunities and for help searching.

The other component is the course assignments. These are designed to challenge you throughout the duration of your internship, to help you apply classroom knowledge and reflect on your ability and skills.
All of the course work is available on Blackboard, allowing you to complete an internship in any city, state or country!
If you are an international student then you will be required to attend at least 1 in-person class during the semester.
