Process of Internship in the Business Department

The Business Internship Program at Eastern is a faculty-led initiative that seeks to provide students with work experience that enhances their classroom knowledge, so students are best prepared to honor God with their gifts and talents in the workplace upon graduation. This program provides an opportunity for majors to learn professional, practical and relational workforce skills, while conferencing with an Eastern faculty member during the internship experience. Internships may be sought as early a sophomore year, and students may earn up to 12 credits while attending Eastern, based on hours worked.

Students complete their internship course by synthesizing their hands on experiences, their challenge to integrate faith and business practices, and their studies in a final paper. Students may seek out internships in the Philadelphia area, in their hometowns, nationally, or internationally, depending on individual career goals and schedules. Summer internship opportunities are counted in the fall semester, and Christmas Break opportunities are counted in the spring semester.

The Center for Career Development is another resource to learn more about internship opportunities at Eastern.

Alumni Testimonials

Shaina Rajan

“My internship with the Philadelphia 76ers was key to my success after college. Through the relationships I built and the time I spent understanding the sports industry at the Sixers, I was able to transfer my position as an intern to a full time role immediately after graduation. I highly recommend taking advantage of internship opportunities while at Eastern.”

"Internships provide a learning experience that you cannot find in a classroom. An insight of how to work with and for people in the business world is one of the most valuable things a student can learn. All of the basic skills that you have learned in the classroom can be utilized in the workplace, and can also help further your knowledge in the field you have selected. Internships are the best way to find your niche in your industry of study."
