Internships & Opportunities

As part of the Center for Student Professional Development’s (CSPD) efforts to prepare students for the working world, guidance for identifying, procuring and preparing for internship opportunities is offered to all interested Fox School of Business students. The timeline for finding and securing an internship varies from student to student, but it is strongly recommended that all Fox students explore the many internship opportunities posted on Handshake, a recruitment and career management platform. There are a wide variety of opportunities available with employers from varied industries.

Select Fox graduate programs, such as the Global MBA, require enrolled students to participate in an internship, often during the summer between their first and second year. All other Fox students are encouraged, but not required, to participate.
