Internships are a learning experience for the student. An internship is an excellent way in which students and sponsoring businesses can mutually benefit. The Lee Business School and the Department of Marketing and International Business (MIB) strive to promote internships in our degree programs. An internship is an out-of-the-classroom learning experience to aid in developing skills, gain relevant work experience, and become acquainted with business professionals.
Students can use a for-credit internship (MKT 483 or IB 481) to partially fulfill either the Business requirement or the Functional Business Area requirement (but not both). To be eligible for a for-credit internship, the student must be admitted to the major, have a 3.0 UNLV GPA, and have nine credits earned in Marketing/International Business requirements or the functional area.
To be recognized and administered by the MIB Department, internships must provide financial compensation and/or college credit awarded through the MIB Department.
