The Organization and Management Studies major is designed to help students dig deeply into some of the most important challenges organizations face today. One of the best ways to learn about those challenges and to see how organizations respond to them is by doing an internship.
Internships with corporations, government agencies, nonprofits, and other kinds of organizations offer an ideal complement to classroom learning, giving students first-hand experience of how organizations operate in the real world. And internship experiences are a great way to prepare for your future-they can strengthen your graduate school application or open the door to your career. It's not uncommon for students' first jobs after graduation to be with their internship sponsor.
To learn more about internship opportunities that are a good match for you, consult with your professors and visit the Center for Career Development, where you'll find information on thousands of internship opportunities in a wide range of fields.
