Internships In the Business Administration Major

Internships are a key part of our career-focused education. Positions in your field give you insider knowledge of your future career options; you'll understand which skills are most relevant on the job, and you can explore your professional interests. You can intern with large and small businesses in the Burlington, Vermont, area during the school year and over the summer. You can also complete internships at home—or anywhere (even abroad!)—during the summer. 

Because of Champlain's Upside-Down Curriculum, you will already have extensive knowledge of your field at the end of your first year, making you well qualified for internships starting the summer before your second year. With such a head start, you'll be able to participate in multiple internships over your time in college, making your résumé stand out to future employers.

How We Prepare You for Experiential Learning

We want you to be well prepared for your first internship, externship, or other fieldwork. After your first year of exploratory practical education, you'll be ready to work with your Career Advisor to take the next step.  

  • The Upside-Down Curriculum allows you to get extensive classroom learning and hands-on experience with industry professionals in your first year, which gives you the real-world skills and qualifications needed to begin taking an internship or externship as early as the summer before your sophomore year.
  • Champlain's Career Collaborative will help you develop your professional résumé and hone your interview skills. Early on in your studies, you'll be able to show employers what you know.
  • Your professors will become your reliable mentors, pointing out the strategic academic and co-curricular activities that will help you build your professional skill set and enhance your résumé.

Local and national employers turn to Champlain for college interns because they are better prepared to work in professional environments than the majority of their peers from other institutions. Many Champlain graduates receive full- and part-time job offers from the organizations where they first took their internships or externships.
