Employer’s Opportunities in RSBC Internship Program

The Rutgers School of Business-Camden (RSBC) Internship Program provides with employers an opportunity to partner with Rutgers School of Business’ Camden’s students who want to apply their knowledge and skills in the workplace, expand professional skills, and earn money and/or academic credit for their work experience.

Students are enrolled in an academic, credit-bearing online course with career-related and reflective assignments due throughout the semester. The course is designed to supplement the academic program by offering qualified students a “real world” employment opportunity to gain professional experience prior to graduation.

The RSBC Internship Program provides businesses and local organizations with a pool of high achieving and capable student interns. Our students, who major in Accounting, Finance, Management, and Marketing are dedicated, diverse, and highly-talented.

Rutgers School of Business-Camden internships are designed to be completed within the context of an academic course. The course includes writing assignments, critical thinking, and presentations. Since the internships are part of a student’s course load, they are offered within our normal academic year schedule:

The course work aspect of the internship allows the Rutgers School of Business-Camden to track our students’ growth, obtain a better understanding of their strengths, reinforce accountability, and continuously improve the quality of our intern assignments at host organizations.

The key to our success is the partnership with our internship hosts/employers.

This partnership allows the host to be an integral part of the educational experience through mentoring, tutoring, and teaching. Course activities, such as the student’s research paper of the organization, the brief review of the intern’s performance requested of the employer, and the on-site visit coordinated by the intern where they demonstrate the tasks they have been working on and the skills they have learned, all lead to a comprehensive experiential learning environment and course.
