Internships & Job Board

The information below pertains only to internships where a declared business major earns academic credit for an approved internship experience. Expressed Interest business students are not eligible for an academic internship. At any time, any business student is allowed to, and encouraged, to complete internships without receiving academic credit.

Note: Academic credit earned for an academic internship in the CBA will always be 3.0 units and graded on a Credit/No Credit basis. These credits do not satisfy any major, core or elective credit requirements – they are additional credits.

Student Instructions

The Process

  1. Students should download the CBA Steps to Apply for a CBA Academic Internship
  2. For students ready to apply, download the CBA Student Internship Application
  3. Download the Faculty Recommendation Form

Once an Academic Internship is approved (based on student eligibility and an approved site), the CBA Office of Student Engagement will enroll the student in the appropriate internship course and facilitate all necessary steps in the Academic Internship process. Students must find a full-time faculty member to serve as their Faculty Sponsor.

Internship Sources

Information for Employers

Effective Fall 2019, the university requires that all internship site locations where a student engages in an Academic Internship have an Academic Internship/Service Learning Agreement between the University and the Community Partner/Employer already established. This agreement must be approved by both the university and the employer and be on file with the university prior to students engaging in an academic internship.

View the Community Partner List for approved Community Partner/Employer internship sites.

Site Approval Process

To request a site approval, download the CBA Academic Internship Site Request form. Once completed, the form should be given to the CBA Office of Student Engagement, Tahoe Hall 1030 or emailed to coey@csus.edu.
