Internships

Overview

Having an internship increases the chances of having a job at graduation. USF Muma College of Business leadership, faculty, and staff share more about the importance of internships in this video.

According to USF’s policy, we have transitioned to remote instruction for all students for the duration of the spring semester.

As a result, ALL internships must be 100% remote at this time.  Please note this restriction will be re-evaluated June 1, 2020.

The health and safety of our community is of paramount importance as we work closely with our local, state and federal partners to respond to this unprecedented challenge. Please visit http://www.usf.edu/coronavirus for the latest updates as they relate to our university community.

Everyone wins with internship programs. Employers are able to boost workplace productivity and students are able to strengthen business skills. Students gain real-life experiences, learn new programs, and experience life in a professional workplace. Employers gain temporary help from fresh and eager aspiring business leaders. While internships are not deliberately designed to serve as extended interviews, they often allow employers to evaluate potential new hires before extending an offer.
