BMGT398A: Individual Study in Business and Management — Internship
This course, coordinated by the Office of Career Services, aims to allow students the opportunity to earn credit for their internship experience and make connections with their experience and academic coursework. BMGT398A is offered in the fall and spring semesters with 1, 2, and 3 credit options. Students need to complete a minimum number of internship hours for each credit option (45 hours for 1 credit, 90 hours for 2 credits, 135 hours for 3 credits). The internship must take place during the semester in which the student would like to enroll in the course and credit can not be given for previous internship. BMGT398A counts toward upper-level elective credit. students cannot receive credit for the same internship. If repeating the class, it must be a different internship or a different role at the same company.The course is repeatable up to a maximum of 6 credits.
Required assignments include activities such as work logs, supervisor evaluations, a reflection paper, and a final presentation (3 credit option only). There is no scheduled class time for this course, and course activities will primarily occur through Canvas. View a sample syllabus for course information (subject to change).
