Internships | Byrum School of Business

Internships

We believe the experiential learning and professional development opportunities you will get from a student internship (are) an essential part of learning how to apply what you’ve learned in the classroom.

That’s why we require Byrum School of Business students to complete at least one summer or semester-based internship. But why stop there? Many of our students complete two or three internship placements earning a total of up to nine academic credits.

Thanks to a thriving, vibrant local economy, you'll have lots of internship options from which to choose. Staff in The Exchange, Marian University's career development office, can help you find and apply for internships.

What are your options?

Depending on your degree program, interests, and career goals, we’ll help you pursue internships that enable you to build a professional network and get great experience before you graduate.
