Whitman Internship Experience

The Whitman School believes internships are a critical component to the learning experience, and can greatly benefit businesses. Internships offer businesses the opportunity to get to know Whitman's exceptionally trained students on a deeper level. Our Whitman interns bring a fresh perspective to the workforce, offer technology knowledge and help to build better business practices. In turn, interns gain valuable real-world work experience and skills.

Internship Policies
  • All Whitman students must complete at least one 120-hour internship as a graduation requirement.
  • The experience should add additional skills to a student’s knowledge base.
  • Students should have the opportunity to develop and demonstrate action-oriented problem solving, critical thinking and persuasive business communication skills.
  • Students must be exposed to “real” job situations relevant to their major.
  • Participating firms must provide a job description with desired qualifications.
  • Firms must provide supervision by a professional with educational and/or professional background in the field of the experience.

The Whitman required internships are recommended to be completed during summer between a student's junior and senior year. However students are highly encouraged to complete multiple internships throughout their college career in order to best identify their strengths and cultural fit.

The Career Center at the Whitman School of Management offers comprehensive and convenient opportunities to engage and recruit your corporation’s future business leaders. Our team is ready to partner with you as you work through the recruiting process.
