BUFFALO, N.Y. -- To reflect the increasing breadth of services available to students and employers, the Credit-Bearing Internship Program in the University at Buffalo School of Management has been renamed the Office of Internships and Experiential Learning.
The office aims to create strong partnerships between students, faculty and employers through internships and real-world projects.
Each year, more than 350 students from undergraduate and graduate programs in the UB School of Management complete credit-bearing internships at sites across Western New York and around the country. In addition, as part of their coursework, students often participate in projects that take them out of the classroom and into the workplace to consult on larger, real-world initiatives.
UB and the School of Management support the concept of experiential learning as an essential complement to the academic curriculum. Undergraduates may begin receiving academic credit for their experiences as early as sophomore year, and students in the full-time MBA program are required to complete at least one credit-bearing internship before graduation.
The UB School of Management is recognized for its emphasis on real-world learning, community and economic impact, and the global perspective of its faculty, students and alumni. The school also has been ranked by Bloomberg Businessweek, the Financial Times, Forbes and U.S. News & World Report for the quality of its programs and the return on investment it provides its graduates.
