All of our students are required to do a three-month internship as part of the program curriculum. Many students choose to do their internship over the summer between their first and second years. Others choose to do their internship during their second year of study.

My titles included “Learning and Development Intern” for New Horizon Academy, and “Talent Analyst Intern” for Granite Equity Partners. I learned the importance of real world experience, networking, and data orientation in the workplace. The lessons I learned from my internships will translate into my career and beyond – the internship requirement is just another reason the program here at MSU prepares you so well to make an impact in the real world.
