Employment & Internships

In conjunction with the Office of Business Student Success, Handshake, and the Olinde Career Center, the Department of Accounting provides its students with the resources they need to gain experience and succeed in today's job market. It is encouraged that both undergraduate and graduate students hold internship positions during both the school year and summer in order to distinguish themselves from others when looking for full-time positions following graduation. Experience resulting from these positions allows students to bring their insights into the classroom for a greater understanding of their industry and fosters a competitive environment within the college.
