About the Business Internship Program

Approved internships provide students with a high-quality intellectual and pre-professional experience that will prepare them for their future roles in business enterprises. Internship opportunities should be sought with a focus on the student’s specific career objectives.

All business majors (except for economics) are required to complete the internship course BUS 3985 or ACC 4985. This course has a co-requisite of actively working in an approved internship. The course is graded and the grade is factored into the GPA; tuition rates apply. Each internship credit satisfies one unit of Elon’s Experiential Learning Requirement (ELR). BUS 3985/ACC 4985 is designed to provide declared business majors the opportunity to reflect on their internship experience and support their professional growth through relevant assignments.

Students have previously interned at companies such as MetLife, JPMorgan, Wayfair, KPMG, Red Hat, Inc. and KPMG.

Elon students seem to have a unique blend of professionalism, academic achievement and relatability. These characteristics allow them to add value to whichever organization they join from day one.

Current role: Financial Analyst (GOLD Associate) with Catalent Pharma Solutions

Responsibilities:

What Destin enjoys most about his job: I have really enjoyed the amount of learning that I have gained in such a short time. Whether it’s how an Advil is made, a company’s procure-to-pay process, or even simple Microsoft Excel skills, my skillset has grown tremendously in 2 1/2 months.

Advice for current students: Try to make the most of any opportunity that comes your way. Even though it might not sound appealing at first, there is always something to learn that will help you grow and realize your true potential.
