Integrated Business Internship
If you are seeking an internship, you should attend a career readiness event (visit business.ucf.edu or email CBAEmployerRelations@ucf.edu for a list of events). Next, you can request a one-on-one meeting with a member of the Employer Relations team: visit business.ucf.edu, choose Office of Professional development from the dropdown menu “Academics”, click on “Make an Appointment”, and select “Employer Relations” under “Select Individual Appointment”
You should also watch the orientation video, completed a profile, and search for internship opportunities on Handshake with the Office of Experiential Learning at http://csel.ucf.edu/.
If you want to earn credit for your internship by enrolling in GEB 4941 (Internship), which is one of the options for your required restricted elective, please make sure the following are true:
- You are registered as an Integrated Business (IB) major (primary core completed) or will be registered by the start of the next semester.
- Your UCF GPA is 2.75 or higher. This will be checked immediately prior to the start of the internship semester.
- If you have already taken or are taking Integrated Business classes, your IB GPA is 2.75 or higher. This will be checked immediately prior to the start of the internship semester
Email IB@ucf.edu and ask for the intern application, the sponsor application, and the intern-supervisor agreement. You complete the first, the employer completes the second, and you and your immediate supervisor complete the third. Scan these as PDF files and email them to Dr. Jim Gilkeson, firstname.lastname@example.org. A complete application (all three forms) is due no later than 5:00 p.m. on the Wednesday before the semester begins. Earlier submission is recommended, in case there are questions or issues.
If everything is in order, you will be granted permission to enroll in GEB 4941 and will receive an email so informing you. You must enroll in the course prior to the first day of classes. GEB 4941 may not be added during drop/add week.
To receive credit for GEB 4941, which is graded ABCDF, you must follow the instructions in the course syllabus found on the course’s Canvas page and complete at least 192 hours of work prior to the end of the semester. No more than 40 hours of work completed prior to the start of the semester may be counted toward the minimum requirements.
