College of Business Internships for Credit
The College of Business (COB) Internship for Credit Program is a unique opportunity to obtain upper level management elective while participating in an internship. There is an on-line class (MAN4940 or MAN6943) taken concurrently with the internship.
Please note that there are additional internship opportunities within the COB and FAU. Various departments offer their own internship programs and you should check with that department for details. Marketing, Health Administration, ITOM and Hospitality Management are a few that have other programs.
Also, the FAU Career Center coordinates a Co-op/Internship Program through which students may be eligible to receive credit.
