As you may have discovered, Marymount School of Business undergrad programs require an internship. Time Magazine provides a very realistic look. Nearly half of all internships are not paid positions, according to National Association of Colleges and Employers.
Interrnships are described as the principle point of entry for young people into the white collar world.
We do believe that internships can have value whether they are paid or not, and as the Time article concludes "The young people who get that work experience will, of course, be more likely than those who don't to move up the ladder."

- create a coherent educational plan based on your abilities, aspirations, interests, and values (and of course, the University's rules)!
- synthesize complex information from various sources to set and achieve your goals, and to make decisions along the way
- learn the policies so you will meet the academic requirements of your major and minor and general University requirements
- understand Marymount’s mission and the philosophy of the School of Business
- cultivate the intellectual habits that lead to a lifetime of learning
- become a citizen who engages in the wider world around you
These objectives were developed by the National Academic Advising Association. I look forward to working with each of you to meet these objectives during your first semesters at Marymount's School of Business.
