Internship Opportunities

Are you a Student looking to take advantage of an Internship Opportunity for college credits?

The Maine Business School Internship Program is designed for students to get hands on, real world experience.  It is an important step into the professional world: where students can develop a network of contacts and gain in-depth experience that often yields a distinctive advantage on the job market.

What is an internship? An internship is a temporary position in which a student performs professional tasks according to their job description.   It is an opportunity for students to put their knowledge and skills to use in a real world setting and to develop professional relationships.

How can a student earn credits?  Students can earn credits if they have “free electives” available.  Depending on the hours worked, students can earn between 1-6 “free elective” credits for an internship.  In order to be eligible for an Internship, students must have a GPA of at least 2.5 or higher, have junior/senior standing, and must not be on probation.

Our Internship Coordinator works closely with companies to establish relationships with the Maine Business School to create internship opportunities for our students, publicize current internship opportunities, oversee internships that are credit based, and conduct exit interviews with internship providers.

Maine Business School students looking to take advantage of the Internship Program should contact our Internship Coordinator, Amanda Paradis, to discuss available opportunities at amanda.paradis1@maine.edu.
