Business major Kathryn Taylor interned in Dynamic Aviation’s personnel office. “There was never a dull moment as I constantly communicated with a variety of applicants. The best part, though was learning about the company culture.”

Internships and Real World Experience
Put classroom learning into effect in the real world.
EMU’s student-run investment club shares profits with local charities like Our Community Place, a nearby non-profit community center familiar to most EMUers.
And each year EMU business majors attend the national Mennonite Economic Development Association (MEDA) convention, and participate in the case competition for students.
Business internships that make a difference
Internships receive 3 SH of credit, generally last for one semester, and in some cases are paid. Internships are a Community Learning designate and, for business administration majors, fulfill one of the required electives. Internships are open to juniors and seniors who have been admitted to the business program and who currently have a 2.7 business GPA.
We place interns in a variety of manufacturing, service, and not-for-profit environments where they work in accounting, cost analysis, human resource management, investments, marketing, operations, and planning. In some cases, internships lead to a permanent position after graduation.
