Internships

  • UB School of Management students now have more flexibility in defining internship opportunities. Please direct your internship questions to mgt-internships@buffalo.edu and someone will respond within 24 hours. More internship resources are available below.
    • Virtual  or remote internships: On-site internships are ideal, but we have revised our internship policy to include virtual internships, provided they meet our standards for academic integrity and quality. Discuss your interest in participating in a remote internship with employers - they may not realize this is a possibility.
    • Project-based “micro” internships: Consider participating in a shorter, project-based micro-internship. This may be a 2-4 week opportunity, but is still a valuable means to gain experience and apply your academic knowledge to a real-world setting.

Make the Most of Your Summer

  • Expand your network. Now more than ever, people are connecting virtually. Use this to your advantage - seek out people with whom you would like to build a professional relationship and learn from. Use LinkedIn and UB Career Connector.
  • Upskill. Consider taking a course or earn a certification. Improve on a skill that will make you more marketable. Some popular online learning and certification platforms include Udemy, Coursera, and LinkedIn Learning
  • Volunteer. You have business skills that nonprofits could use. Once things open up again, consider volunteering some of your time. Check out these volunteer opportunities.
  • Gain experience. Sign up with Parker Dewey and complete a small project for money. These are small projects that companies need done but do not have the time or staff to devote to them. NOTE: These projects do not qualify for CPT (curricular practical training).
  • Join a LinkedIn Group which provides a space for individuals with similar interests to share their insights and experiences, ask for guidance and build valuable connections.
  • Follow companies you are interested in on Twitter and LinkedIn.
  • Develop a professional portfolio or website. This is a great way to demonstrate your interests, accomplishments and goals in an online platform.
  • Read or listen to a book on leadership, consulting or business. Use this time to become well-read.
  • Become a thought leader on LinkedIn. Pick a topic to really focus on. Share articles and news. You could even write an article.
