Your Project Based Internship Assignment

The Project-Based Internship enables students to have a meaningful experiential learning opportunity. Students will work in teams to conduct all research and project activities within the limits of the online classroom. The project will allow students to make a real contribution to an organization’s challenges or opportunities while working within their own time-parameters. The culmination of the course will be the delivery of the completed project to the organizational client.
