Learn by doing

Build your resume. Work with industry experts. Discover your passion.

Getting an internship is the best way to find out exactly what you want to do after graduation—and what you don't. Apply the skills you've learned in the classroom, or learn something completely different. The Tippie College of Business Assistant Director, Careers and Engagement and the Pomerantz Career Center can help you find an internship that will help you get ahead. 

As a Tippie student, your internship can be part of your Tippie RISE experience if you complete one of the approved internship courses. But don't stop at just one. Every internship you get during your time at Tippie makes you that much more prepared for the workplace after graduation. 

Internship Scholarships
