Gaining experience through an internship or mentorship is one of the most important things you can do while at Wagner. Employers rate internship experience as the #1 factor they look for in new employees. So where do you begin? Here!
Receiving Academic Credit
Attempting to arrange academic credit for an internship experience? Here’s what you’ll need to do:
- Apply online for an Internship.
- Secure approvals from your academic advisor, the Director of Business Experiential Learning and Internships, and the Nicolais School of Business Dean before registration.
- Register for BU397, a 1-unit course requiring 120 internship hours, during the registration period for that semester.
- Business internships are applied towards business electives. Since the two are independent programs of each other, students may not apply hours obtained through the Senior Reflective Tutorial (RFT) towards internships for academic credit, or vice versa. An internship for academic credit can be taken concurrently with the Senior RFT, and hours can be done at the same organization, but the hours must be earned separate from each other. Before using the same company twice, students are expected to check with their RFT professor to verify that they find this acceptable for their course.
