Internships are considered to be important for offering practical work experience and an introduction to the demands of the profession. The workplace can be a meaningful laboratory for exploring interests, ideas and issues of business ethics.

The practice of interning with businesses as a student can be an exciting and rewarding experience in the best of circumstances and a tedious, disappointing experience if not properly administered. Businesses that offer compensated internships tend to have greater expectations upon student performance and, as a result, offer more rewarding experiences, generally speaking, than those that expect gratis internships.

The Department of Accounting, Business and Finance does not measure internships in terms of their merit to the learning experience of students. The constraints of time and place prohibit this. The department neither endorses nor solicits specific internships. Rather, we serve as a conduit to match students with internship interests with businesses that have a desire to serve future professionals.

Accounting majors are encouraged to enroll in an accounting internship interim their junior or senior year. Although students must secure internships, consult with your academic advisor for ideas. Some Spartanburg firms routinely host Wofford accounting majors for interim.
