Winter Internship Program
In the spring of 2006 the accounting faculty implemented a program for junior accounting
majors to complete a full-time internship during the spring semester. Students work
full-time for ten weeks at an accounting firm or business organization then return
to campus for six weeks of intensive study in two accounting courses: BUS 317 Special
Topics in Financial Reporting and BUS 318 Accounting and Auditing Processes. Students
will receive two course units of credit for the internship experience and two units
of credit for the two accounting courses, thus retaining their full-time student status
and allowing them to graduate in four years with 150 semester hours of credit. Students
normally interview for these positions during the spring semester of their sophomore
Students return to campus the week after spring break to begin five to six weeks of
intensive study in accounting. Classes are held in the early morning and late afternoon.
Each class meets for approximately an hour and a half, four days a week. The classes
extend through the final exam week to allow for contact hours equivalent to a full
semester course. Since the students are not taking any other classes, this should
not be a problem.
Some firms that have come to campus to recruit include: PwC, EY (Ernst & Young), KPMG,
Deloitte, RSM, CliftonLarsonAllen, BDO, BKD, State Farm, Caterpillar and several others.
