Business Management Internship Program
ACC’s Business Management internship courses are designed for students majoring in Management, International Business, and Logistics/Supply Chain Management.
We have engaged several great employers in the Austin area who offer both paid and unpaid internships for our students. An internship is a hands-on work experience where students apply the principles they’ve learned in the classroom to a real-world setting. Learn about your chosen career field by working with managers and professionals from inside a company so you can decide whether it is the right choice for you. A successful internship also results in skills and experience you can add to your resume and helps you with your future job search efforts. If accepted into the course, you will also earn college credit for your internship hours.
We are excited to collaborate with Samuel Greer, the Director of the Center for Experiential Learning to identify employers who will offer internships. Interns will earn course credit and our goal is to find paid intern- ships, for 16, 12, or 8 week classes for Fall and Spring and 6 or 11 week classes for the Summer.
To be eligible for an internship course, you must have completed 50% of your Associate’s Degree or Certificate in Management, International Business or Logistics/Supply Chain Management, and have Mary Rincon validate your enrollment.
Please send your ACCeID for internship eligibility and clearance to email@example.com.

What is the Internship Program?
The internship program is designed to provide students with an opportunity to relate current theory from the college classroom to practical experience under the direction of ACC faculty and work-place managerial professionals.
What are the requirements?
An “intern” is an advanced or upper division student gaining supervised practical experience in a field of endeavor he/she intends to pursue a career in, or learn more about. From an academic perspective, an intern is viewed as a student in an environment offering opportunities to see the similarities and differences in the classroom learning and practical application. He/she receives academic credit and grade based on the completion of required, on-site internship performance, and a written research, problem solving, managerial-level project.
When can I enroll in the internship class?
In order for your internship to count for class credit students must have completed 50% of the program credit hours prior to enrolling in the class or approval from the internship coordinator.
How many hours does internship require?
In order to successfully complete the internship class, students must complete 100-160 hours within a 16 week period based on the semester enrolled.
How many hours a week do I need to work?
Typically during fall and spring semester, students work around 10 hours per week at their internship. However, this should be a discussion between the student and internship employer and an agreement of schedule should be settled upon that works for both parties.
Who is responsible for finding internship placement?
Ultimately, it is the student’s responsibility to find their own internship. The Management Department is working towards creating a list to help match students with employers.
Can I work at my internship when school is not in session (ex. Spring Break)?
Yes, students are able to work during these “off” times and the department supports this as being an excellent time to gain valuable experience.
Yes, students will need to attend a few classes throughout the semester. During these classes the instructor will review managerial and leadership styles and information which you can utilize during your internship and help you complete your final project.
Will the instructor come visit me on site during my internship?
Yes, the internship instructor will complete one site visits during your internship.
Will I be paid for my internship?
This all depends on the internship provider. Some companies are able to pay our interns and some are not. All internship experiences are valuable. Remember that if you go in to an internship and work hard, you may create future job opportunities and connections. Internships should be paid unless approved by Vicky Valdez or Donny Hurwitz.
