Academic Enrichment Opportunities
As part of collaboration between LSUS and Germany's FHNON University in Lüneburg, LSUS students have the opportunity to study 'Issues in European Business' on location! The two-week course takes place between the spring and summer I semesters. Students earn three elective credit hours and will be back in time for Summer I and II.
Business Internship Program
The School of Business Internship Program offers students an opportunity to gain work experience in their chosen field, obtaining valuable real world experience, while also getting 3 hours of 400-level college credit in their major. Internship jobs are competitively applied and interviewed for and the student becomes a temporary, usually part-time, employee of the organization.
The Director of the Internship Program may assist in job searches, however, students should seek out appropriate internship positions on their own also. A portion of the Internship learning experience is the job search and winning the job through the resume and interview process. Jobs can be with most any organization, locally or not, but they must be a new, pre-professional position. Most major corporations and organizations have structured Internship Programs with specific application instructions that students should research.
Frequently, internship positions lead to offers of full-time employment for interns. The advantage for organizations participating in the internship program is it is an excellent way to support their community by helping to educate and employ students. Also, the internship period is a no obligation trial period for both the organization and the student. Neither party is obligated beyond the required 120 hours.
Students must meet eligibility requirements of 60+ hours completed and a 2.75 GPA (or 3.0 over the last 24 hours). Interested students submit a completed application and a current professional resume to the Director of the Internship Program. Click here to download the 475 Internship Requirements Packet.
Those interested in more information about the Business Internship Program may e-mail or call Mr. Mike Simon at (318) 797-5289.
Students complete a minimum of 120 hours of work for the organization, maintain a weekly log of the work experience, and prepare a final report. Each student intern is paired with a faculty mentor who assists the intern. Students receive three hours of college credit for successful completion of their internship responsibilities.
