For more information on business related internships contact your Internship Coordinator for the Woodbury School of Business. Remember that GVI offers support before, during and after your internship. Making use of this support-channel before deciding on an internship ensures that you make the right choice for your career goals.
The Virtual Internship partners students with an organisation to work on real-world projects in the digital business environment. The Virtual Internship will be carried out under academic and industry supervision through an online platform. The online platform ensures timely support, reflective practice and regular feedback to improve the outcomes of experiential learning for students. Students will have the opportunity to apply, evaluate and reflect on knowledge gained throughout their studies and the links to future career options. Business majors who started at UF Summer B 2009 or later are required to enroll in GEB 4941 – Internship in Business Administration and complete an internship of at least 150 hours before the start of their senior year.
A School of Business internship is a rewarding experience, for the intern, who sees how the real world works, and for the company opening the doors of opportunity. Many of our students receive job offers at the end of their internships. The internship experience will give you a deeper understanding of your career goals and re-enforce your desire to enter the field you internship in or you will learn it is not really what you want to do. All of GVI’s business internships are flexible and you can choose to sign up for two weeks, 12 weeks, or a duration somewhere in between.
Major banks, including Citi, Community, Key Bank, and M&T Bank, as well as Fortune 500 companies also recruit on campus. Real-world experience matters in the workplace, which is why the School of Business Internship Program is a key component of our students’ future success. The above are not mutually exclusive – and they don’t depend on how you find or do your internship. The decision to take an internship for academic credit is your decision. The internship experiences will help you understand the skills needed for success in today’s business world. The Department of Workforce Services has many programs to help individuals and their families succeed.
