Marketing Internship for Academic Credit

Each semester a few lucky business students will be accepted for this unique opportunity on the basis of their previous academic record at the University of Utah, successful completion of marketing courses, as well as the opportunity to learn marketing concepts in the newly acquired internship. The Marketing Department Internship Course is an opportunity to earn upper-division marketing credit while learning about careers and gaining real-world experience in the workplace. This internship provides credit for learning, not credit simply for working.

Please note: because these are academic credits, tuition will be charged for the three course credits once you have been approved to be added to the course.

Optional: Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Rising Star Internship
You may choose to participate in the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Rising Star Internship as part of your marketing internship. This is a joint program offered by the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative and Business Career Services of the David Eccles School of Business. If you choose to do so, two of your four learning objectives must have an ethics component. Please review the written code of marketing ethics published by the AMA, and examples of ethics-based marketing learning objectives.
