Business & Hospitality Internships

Internships Work!

The School of Business & Hospitality works with employers to ensure that our students gain valuable learning experiences in real-world settings. Through the internship experience, students not only apply the skills learned in the classrooms and labs, but they also gain an understanding of the industry that can only be found on the job. Internships are required of students enrolled in Baking & Pastry Arts, Culinary Arts Technology, Culinary Arts & Systems, and Hospitality Management. Internships are highly encouraged for all other program areas.
