About the Business Internship Program

Registered/supervised 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 and international economics) are required to complete the internship course BUS 381. 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).

The mission of the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business is to design and deliver transformational educational experiences through engaged learning, excellence in teaching, mission-driven applied and pedagogical scholarship, and service, with a rigorous program of study that produces graduates able to provide principled leadership in the global community. The internship course requirement is designed to support the mission.

We have interviewed two Elon students and we have been nothing but blown away by their performance. They are clearly taught all the right tools. We are so happy to have built a connection with the school!

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.
