Internships in Accounting
An internship can give you a chance to see whether a company's focus supplements your own career goals. Employers, in turn, can evaluate their interns' compatibility as prospective employees. Many companies hire a majority of their entry-level employees from among students who have completed internships.
All undergraduate students who have departmental approval may receive one semester hour of academic credit for an internship during any term (6A:199 Academic Internship Program).
