Co-ops & Internships

"While Michigan Tech opened the doorway to the workforce, Nation Ranch Marketing allowed me to take my first step through it. My internship with Nation Ranch provided me with an education that cannot be obtained in a classroom, and I feel lucky to have been given such a beneficial opportunity." —Rob Devaun, Business Administration, Class of 2007

Why would I want a co-op or internship?

Co-ops and Internships are available for business students at Michigan Tech, and students are encouraged to check them out! Co-ops and Internships can provide students with valuable work experience within their field of study. Students on co-op earn a paycheck and academic credit through Michigan Tech. Most students get internships during the summer to obtain work experience, however even though students do not earn college credit through internships, many of them still get paid for their work
