Earn Academic Credit

The Internships and Experiential Learning team assists all UB School of Management students seeking academic credit for internship participation. Internships are registered as three elective credits, and can count toward graduation requirements.

Follow These Steps

  1. Once you have secured an internship offer, your first step is to tell us about it. Stop by our office inside of the Career Resource Center, 308 Alfiero, during walk-in hours, or send us an email at mgt-internships@buffalo.edu. 
  2. You will need to obtain a detailed internship description from your employer. We can help with this step.
  3. Once you have a description, log in to BizLink, click "Report My Internship" from your list of shortcuts, complete and save the Main Form.
  4. Our staff will review all internship reports for approval. Once approved, we will email your employer and instruct them to complete the Management by Objectives (MBO) agreement. You will be copied on that email.
  5. Coordinate with your employer, as you and the employer are both required to read, complete and sign the MBO.
  6. Submit the completed MBO to our office. International students are required to follow additional steps.
  7. We complete your course registration for three academic credits. The course will appear on your UBLearns account, but keep in mind that you will submit all internship assignments through BizLink.
