One of the Business Foundation options is an international immersion trip. This trip is currently scheduled during Spring Break. In recent years, our participating students traveled to Singapore and Malaysia to study HR from a global perspective.
The Human Resources Internship is a six-credit-hour practicum that will take place in the summer between your spring and final fall semester. The internship is typically between eight and 12 weeks long. In addition to the work requirement, students also have required course work to complete throughout the internship. Ultimately, the responsibility for obtaining an internship is the student's. However, the Office of Career Management works directly with the students in order to help facilitate the search. The OCM helps with weekly CAT meetings, resume building, networking, career fairs and employee relations.
