About Externships: On-the-job Training While You’re Still a Student
Some programs of study at Harris School of Business require completion of an externship/internship. During externship/internship, you will apply what you’ve learned in the classroom in an actual work setting while under the supervision of qualified personnel. An added benefit of the externship is that our externship companies frequently hire our students on a permanent basis following completion of their program. Please keep in mind that successful completion of the externship/internship is a requirement for graduation.
