Students in the entertainment management program are required to find an internship with an entertainment management related company. In return for a minimum of 90 hours of work over a minimum of two months, students can earn three credit hours toward their degree. As part of their internship experience, students are required to complete three assignments: a biweekly journal, a paper and a problem/solution project.
Where can I find internships?
Students have found internships in many companies, both locally and nationally. During the first week of the first EM course (MGT 310) students enroll access will be given to a database of over 700 internship contacts (from sports, music, film, tv, events and venues) compiled over two decades. The required internship is to be completed AFTER completing MGT 310 (fall semester) or MGT 410 (spring semester). Here's a sample of where students have completed internships.
