INTERNSHIP PROGRAM (WORK-BASED PARADIGM)
The College of Business actively supports the Work-Based Paradigm (WBP) of the University by involving students in the WBP major components: shadowing, mentoring, interning and cooperative education. Internships normally consist of students working full or part time for a semester at a cooperating firm. Internships may be for pay, volunteer and/or for course credit. Business students are expected to complete internship experiences in their major area of study before graduation. The college offers three formal courses for internship credit: BUSA 3100 (3hrs), BUSA 4100 (3hrs) and MGHC 4211 (4hrs). Cooperative Education assignments are normally at out-of-state locations, although a limited number of COOP assignments are available in the Albany area. Students may earn University credit for cooperative education courses while on assignments.
All degrees in the college of business can be earned either during regular work hours, in evening classes or online. Weekend classes are scheduled when enrollment demands are sufficient.
The College of Business has several articulation agreements which allow students with associate degrees to transfer easily to Albany State University. These agreements include technology management, accounting, information systems, marketing and management.
