In an effort to provide a top notch business education, The GSW School of Business Administration desires to provide our qualified students outstanding internship opportunities.  We thank you for your contribution to this endeavor.  Students should be provided a meaningful and memorable internship experience and are prepared to approximately 15 hours per week.  Responsibilities should be challenging, stimulating, and provide the student the opportunity to make a contribution to the company.  An ideal arrangement would be assigning students a challenging managerial project such as developing or refining some sort of system, analytical tool, policies and procedures, manual, or alternative methodology for the company.  Opportunities to help management make decisions, research opportunities, solve problems, and provide important recommendations are most desirable.    Employers are asked to provide open communication, coaching, and frank feedback on student performance.  We want you as manager to work closely with our students.  Students will be asked to prepare a written report for a faculty member at GSW and you will be asked to provide feedback to the School of Business as well.

Our intern selection procedure is as follows: A committee of faculty will choose 2 or 3 finalists for the company to interview or if the company so desires we will make a selection.
