Internship Program Overview​

The Menlo College Internship Program offers organizations throughout the San Francisco Bay Area the opportunity to mentor the next generation of business leaders. We welcome you to join our partner organizations in recognizing that internships are a cost-effective way to identify and evaluate new talent and engage with the community.

An internship is a form of experiential learning that integrates knowledge and theory learned in the classroom with practical application and skills development in a professional setting. Internships give students the opportunity to gain valuable applied experience and make connections in professional fields they are considering for career paths; and give employers the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent. — National Association of Colleges and Employers

The Internship Program is designed to allow students to apply the knowledge and skills they have gained in their courses to professional settings and to explore a particular career path. Interns receive 3-6 units of academic credit for participating in an internship, attending the internship seminar, and completing academic assignments. Students are evaluated on the learning they demonstrate through the internship seminar, based on their internship learning objectives and their experiences in the field.

Students at Menlo College can intern in for-profit, non-profit, or government organizations in the following general areas: marketing, finance, accounting, human resource management, sports management, international management, entrepreneurship, real estate, general management, and psychology.
