During a business student's experience at any university, the majority of learning and exposure to new concepts occurs in a traditional classroom setting. This is an important part of any student's education; it provides them a wealth of information that will enable them to perform deftly when they begin their post-graduation career.
There, of course, is the rub - which is the task of parlaying their classroom experience into their first job. The Hardin-Simmons University Kelley College of Business Internship Program permits students to begin working in a business setting while still enrolled in the university. The benefit of such an experience is that students can begin to apply the knowledge they learn in the classroom before graduation.
Not only does this experience allow students to gain upper division elective hours, but it also gives them an opportunity to determine what route they plan to follow in business upon graduation.
Eligibility for the internship program:
students must be enrolled in the Kelley College of Business
students must have completed four semesters or at least 60 semester hours of credit toward a business degree
students must carry a minimum 2.5 grade point average and meet any other requirements set by individual employers
students must be recommended by their advisors for internship credit.
Students may petition the Kelley College of Business to earn three semester hours of college credit by meeting the following criteria:
1. maintain a journal relative to the job
The journal that you keep while taking part in your internship should contain documentation of all tasks performed during the internship, specific experiences pertaining to your major and career field, and observations regarding information and practices that relate to what you have learned in the classroom. This journal will be included with your report as an appendix.
2. submit a typed report summarizing the internship
The report is that heart of the internship. An internship bridges the worldplace with the classroom. The report is where you will demonstrate that you are able to link the job and classroom together. In the report, you are to identify how the internship experience relates to what he/she has learned in the classroom. It is important that the student talk about specific information learned in courses that was useful or used during the internship. The report should also include current events in the student's field that they came across and also skills attained on the job. This report should also describe the courses at HSU that were most helpful to you in your internship.
3. prepare and give an oral presentation to the Kelley College of Business faculty
The presentation is esentially a summarized, oral form of your report and journal. The student may use visuals such as powerpoint, white board, or an overhead projector in order to facilitate his/her presentation to the faculty. Presentations are typically 20 minutes long (which should include about 5 minutes for questions).
4. receive a satisfactory job evaluation from the employer.
This can take the form of a recommendation letter or the completion of a written evaluation of your work by the employer upon request of the student.
Course credit counts as an advanced business elective. Pass/fail grades are given for internship credit. The student's faculty advisor must approve the internship. The internship experience requires at least 100 hours of work related to the student's academic field.
The Kelley College of Business at Hardin-Simmons University is home to several student organizations. All are vibrant, dynamic organizations existing to develop leadership and business skills and life-long friendships among members.
Delta Mu Delta is an International Honor Society in Business. With a total membership that has now surpassed 150,000 undergraduates, graduates, and doctorate students, Delta Mu Delta has a two-fold mission—to promote higher scholarship in education for business and to recognize and reward business students who have distinguished themselves scholastically. The Iota Eta Chapter of Delta Mu Delta at Hardin-Simmons University was chartered in 1999. Invitation to membership is extended to those business students in the top 20 percent of their college class (with a minimum 3.25 gpa). Initiation is conducted in the fall semester each year. More information can be found at the Society’s web site: http://www.deltamudelta.org
Technically called Kappa Gamma Beta, but the common shorthand sounds a bit more intimidating. Hardin-Simmons University has a number of social clubs, this one for business students. Work with other students to develop service opportunities, network, and just have fun. In addition to enjoying volleyball nights and fielding a Relay-for-Life team, the KGB has accompanied professors to the metroplex to visit The Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, Ranger Stadium, The Bureau of Engraving, Anchor Fabricators, a precision metal fabricator and government contractor, Weaver, a regional accounting firm with offices across Texas, and the VP of Marketing for the Belo Corporation, a Fortune 500 company.
