One of the Business Elective Options is an international immersion trip. This trip is currently scheduled in the spring after the end of classes and before the internships begin. In 2013 our participating students traveled to Singapore and Malaysia to study HR from a global perspective.
The Human Resources Internship is a 6 credit-hour practicum that will take place in the summer between your spring and final fall semester. The internship is typically between 8-12 weeks long. In addition to the work requirement, students also have required coursework 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. For more detailed information, please visit their web page here.
