Businesses wanting to participate in the Dillard College of Business Administration’s internship program are asked to complete registration at www.MustangsHIRE.org and fill out a detailed description of the internship opportunity. Once submitted, the opportunity is reviewed by the department chair of the business major(s) to which the experience relates.
Business students qualified to participate in the internship program may review the internships listed on www.MustangsHIRE.org. Students apply to an internship opportunity via www.MustangsHIRE.org. The employer receives student applications via email and then arranges an interview with students. If selected for the internship, the student will attend an orientation session with the faculty advisor who will oversee the internship experience. The student can register for the internship course and then begin the internship experience.
On or before the first week in which the internship experience is to commence, the faculty advisor who oversees the internship experience will have the student and business partner execute a learning objectives agreement. As a part of the assessment of the internship’s success, these learning objectives are reviewed by the participants at the conclusion of the internship. Also, as a part of the quality assurance of the program, evaluations are completed by the business, student, and faculty advisor. These evaluations are submitted to the internship coordinator who reviews and analyzes them for continuous improvement purposes.
When offering internships, employers should follow the guidelines provided by the:
