Academic Internships

The College of Business offers an Academic Internship program where students may opt to complete an internship for academic credit if they wish; however this is not required. For more details regarding academic internship requirements or to post an opportunity, please visit our internship info section on the Business Job Board.

For an academic internship (student earns 3.0 credits in a semester), the company/organization must have a formal site agreement between the organization and Sacramento State on file with the Sac State Community Engagement Center.

For new site agreements, this can take several weeks to process and will require the signature of the legal representative for your organization. To request a site agreement please complete the Site Agreement Request Form and the CBA Office of Student Engagment will contact you to facilitate the process.

Special Events

Special Events for business students take place all throughout the academic year. We provide networking opportunities, career readiness events, information sessions with employers, and many different events designed to connect students with the local business community.

If you are an employer or organization who would like to engage with Sac State Business students, please review the wide variety of options to consider.

All of our events are designed to provide our students with the opportunity to interact with and network with companies and organizations where they may begin, build and engage in their own professional network and career development.

Study Break Events

We invite partnerships with companies and organaizations who are seeking to engage and meet our business students to sponsor a Study Break Event during the Fall or Spring semester. This format allows excellent interaction with our students as they drop by in between classes. You provide the food/beverage and we provide the students. This is very popular with our students as it supports them and fits in with their busy schedules.

A Study Break Event is perfect for organizations who are looking for more visibility and exposure on campus or for direct recruiting opportunities. For this type of event, the organization works with the CBA Office of Student Engagement to provide a coffee break, lunch break or snack break for the students. The CBA OSE provides event coordination, promotion to students and all publicity with your company sponsorship information. The cost varies based on the type of event hosted.

If you are interested in setting up a Study Break Event, please complete our OSE Study Break Event Interest Form and our team will reach out to you to discuss possibilites.
