Internships (Students)

Juniors, seniors, and graduate students are encouraged to seek internships. CSUSB and the Jack H. Brown College of Business and Public Administration provide excellent resources for researching internship opportunities.  Students are encouraged to complete multiple internships while completing a Bachelor's or Master's degree. Internships provide an opportunity to earn elective credit.

To employers: please visit the Internships (Employers) website for employer information and forms.

Why Intern?

Business and public administration students should seek internship opportunities that allow growth in the following areas:
Career Development Provides insight into career paths and succession planning within the chosen field. Internships improve résumés and employment prospects.
Professional Skills Allows an opportunity to observe and apply classroom knowledge in a working environment
Industry Knowledge Expands knowledge regarding the industry, potential competitors, vendors, customers, and products/services
Communication Skills Provides an opportunity to improve verbal and written communication skills
Personal Skills Provides an opportunity to interact with organization leaders, and work in a diverse environment

At the onset of an internship, students are asked to establish key goals and objectives.  Strong goals and objectives will benefit both the intern and the employer. The Jack H. Brown College (JHBC) internship program was not established just to offer students credit for work, but rather, the program enables students to build a résumé with strong examples within a real-world environment. The program must balance that objective with the needs of the employer.
