Students in economics and business are encouraged to pursue internships as an integral part of their coursework. Working in consultation with a faculty advisor, students may be eligible to receive academic credit for an internship.
The Berry Center for Economics, Business, and Public Policy and the Career Engagement Center support many high-quality opportunities with U.S. and international businesses and organizations. The following list highlights a few of the locations at which our students have worked recently.

Students are highly encouraged to pursue their individual academic interests beyond the level of established courses and syllabi. Through individualized projects and summer student-faculty research, students can work closely with faculty members on areas of mutual interest. Individual projects may be associated with graduate school preparation or focused on career preparation.
Many of these projects are presented at the annual Student Symposium. Recent projects include:
- Does Opportunity Make The Thief? An Empirical Analysis of Natural Resources and Perceived Corruption
- The Effect of Information Regarding Defensive Performance in Major League Baseball on Wage Structure: An Empirical Analysis
- The Burnham Plan Rediscovered: A Look at Local Development in the City of Chicago
