The A.R. Sanchez, Jr. School of Business (ARSSB) Internship Program is committed to having a more active role in placing our students in positions where they are going to be mentored by our business leaders. Our objective is to have our students gain real-world experience through hands-on learning while creating lasting partnerships with different institutions and organizations on an on-going basis.

Internships benefit students, internship provider, and ARSSB. Our goal is to have our students succeed and graduate with a skills-set that will make them competitive in their field of study. The benefits that the participating organization/institution obtains, comes in a variety of forms:
  • Interns bring new and innovative ideas, technological skills set, and high quality talent
  • Internships provide short-term support and an increase in productivity
  • Potential for an official hire increasing the retention rate five times
  • It is a low-cost method of training potential employees
  • It gives back to the community by supporting our future workforce

  The Internship Program credits three semester hours applicable to most of ARSSB´s degrees. For students to be eligible and participate in this program, undergraduate students must have completed 90 credit hours and have at least an overall 2.5 GPA with at least a 3.0 GPA in their major; graduate students must have completed at least 15 graduate credit hours with at least a 3.3 GPA for all attempted course work toward the degree; the internship opportunity must be related to the student´s field of study and requires a minimum of 135 hours of supervised work.

Our students´ field of study varies through the various disciplines in business. Undergraduate students have the choice to major in Accounting or Management Information Systems; or Business Administration with a concentration in Business Administration, International Economics, Finance, Management, or Marketing. Graduate students may obtain their Master of Business Administration (MBA) with a concentration in Accounting, Information Systems, International Business (taught in English or Spanish), International Banking and Finance, International Trade Economics, Logistics, Management, or Marketing; MBA-International Trade (MBA-IT); Master of Professional Accountancy (MPAcc); or Master of Science in Information Systems (MS-IS).

  • If a scholarship stipend is provided, we will assist in routing the monies through the Office of Institutional Advancement for tax purposes.
