International Internships an Option

Study abroad fall or spring and add an international internship along with the classes you take.

Smeal College of Business encourages students to consider an international internship as part of their fall or spring study abroad program. Part time internships provide an immersive cultural opportunity and allow you to experience business in another country. Set yourself apart and make your resume shine!

The grade from the internship class is listed on student’s transcript as IB 199, and counts toward semester and cumulative grade point averages. Credit does not apply toward Smeal graduation requirements.
