Internships are an integral part of the marketing program at Indiana State University. Students are encouraged to gain practical hands-on experience by participating in an internship or co-op-related work experience with a business, service organization, or government agency.
The University's Professional Practice Program, offered through the ISU Career Center, is a source of potential internship leads, and the Scott College of Business' Meis Student Development Center serves as a valuable resource for business students seeking professional development and experiential learning opportunities. Internships approved by the Department of Marketing also can earn credit toward completion of the degree.
Here is a partial list of organizations for which marketing majors and minors have completed internship and co-op assignments:
Several student co-op opportunities are also available within the marketing program, including:
- promoting the freshman mentoring program
- organizing the student chapter of the American Marketing Association (AMA) and its activities
- advertising sales for departmental publications
- promoting the marketing major to prospective students
