 * Pending approval, international students seeking internship participation are eligible only after successful completion of the first year of the program (two full semesters) due to work authorization requirements. Additionally, a minimum GPA of 3.0 is required. The School of Management is not able to guarantee MS Finance internship placements, therefore students need to seek opportunities in their own networks and contact the Credit-Bearing Internship Program for approval.
