According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers "52.6 percent [of recent graduates] reported that they obtained their current positions directly from their internships or internship contacts."
Our SCSU School of Business faculty and staff work hand-in-hand to prepare our students for a rapidly changing business environment. Whether students’ internships take place in a company or non-profit organization, they bring creative thinking, problem-solving skills, and innovation to the workplace.
