Craig School of Business
Business Career Exploration
There is so much more to learn that what is in the classroom. Service learning, internships, clubs and organizations play an important role in your personal growth and success beyond the classroom.
The B.A.S.E Office works closely with the Career Development Center and the Office of Student Experiences to ensure that you are career ready upon graduation.
Business, Economics and Fashion Merchandising are multi-disciplinary degrees that can allow you to have a career in almost any field. You can explore the Career Development Center's website to see what career community you wish to explore.
Please note you can find a career in all career communities listed on the Career Development Center's website.
For nearly all options within Business Administration (Accountancy is the only exception, but you can still get units), you can use an internship to satisfy one of your Option Elective courses.
For Fashion Merchandising and Economics, you can also use an internship to statisfy degree requirements or elective units to obtain 120 units.
If you have obtained an internship and would like to see if you can earn credit for it, please contact the Office of Student Experiences to have your internship reviewed.
Advising Note: the intership must relate to your option in order to get major course credit.
There are a large number of resources that will assist you with finding an internship.
