We at Heller College of Business are excited to be able to talk about our Experiential Learning Program, offering students the opportunity to work full time or part time in a local organization while continuing their studies at HCB.  Internships are designed to immerse the student in an organization that encourages them to apply the concepts and skills that they’ve learned in classrooms in a practical setting. The key part of the internship process is the student’s reflection and reporting on what they learned at the workplace. The overall objective is to create a mutually beneficial situation for the intern and the internship sponsoring organization. We provide internships for students of Marketing, Finance, Management, HR, MIS, Real Estate, and Hospitality Management.  Students earn course credit and also receive possible financial compensation for involvement in an internship experience.
