For students interested in applying classroom entrepreneurship concepts to real-world situations, an Entrepreneurial Internship is the solution. Entrepreneurial Interns typically work 150 hours during a semester for a growth-oriented entrepreneurial company. Most are paid positions. Entrepreneurial Internships will appear on your transcript, and can be taken for credit or non-credit.
The tasks you will perform as an Intern vary from entrepreneur to entrepreneur, but could include any of the following:
- Formulate and execute a social media campaign.
- Assess and consider business models.
- Define a project designed to capture a growth opportunity.
- Evaluate the feasibility of a new product, service, or venture.
- Conduct a value chain study for an industry/market.
- Develop a short and/or long-term strategy for a product in the marketplace.
- Analyze customer trends.
- Formulate an action oriented marketing plan.
- Create and manage customer retention events.
- Perform project assessments to support growth activities.
- Create a business plan to support a funding request.
- Develop advertising copy, marketing materials, interactive media presentations, and public relations messages.
