Internships are educational experiences in a professional environment where students experience a chance to integrate the theory with the actual practice of business solutions. Internships have become a necessary component of higher education — they enable students to be discerning about the type of work they wish to pursue (and don't wish to pursue) after graduation; they offer experiences that are very different from classroom learning; they show future employers that they have experience working in a true business setting. Often, a positive internship experience can lead to a post-graduation position.
Jordan Goldstein, major in Business Administration
Internship: This past summer I worked for Evercore Partners in their Advisory Research Group completing a diverse array of research requests that spanned industries from metals and mining, to health care, to technology, media and telecom. This experience offered me exposure to the important metrics that drive valuations in these industries - economic, financial and industry-specific. My research deliverables of historical and forecasted data became the foundation of the financial models developed by the bankers. This gave me exposure to the application of industry data in financial modeling and financial markets. This experience allowed me to see how my knowledge I gained in the classroom is put to use in the real world.
At the School of Business, we work collaboratively with our students to convey the very best internships, as well as the resources for landing these spots, to our students.
