Signature Internship Program
Start and Shape Your Career
Internships provide incredible value, allowing students to apply classroom learnings and skills in meaningful work environments, gain exposure to various roles and industries and open the opportunity to network for future full-time roles. In many internships, you get paid, too!
Take a class.
Horn offers three classes that provide the skills and resources needed to land your dream internship:
ENTR161 - Workshop: Landing Your First Internship
ENTR260 - Landing Your Dream Internship
ENTR364 - Internship in Practice
Attend an interest meeting.
Discuss career interests, resume preparation, your LinkedIn profile, interviewing practice and more.
Contact Ted Foltyn directly.
If you cannot attend a session, you should contact Ted Foltyn to discuss your situation.
You must first attend an interest session or arrange to meet with a Horn Entrepreneurship staff member 1:1.
The Signature Internships are for ENTR majors only and primarily held in the summer. On occasion, Horn will offer part-time internships during the school year which are open to all qualified students.
Companies are recruited to participate, ensuring the work is “entrepreneurial” in nature. This ranges from small startups to a company of any size that needs assistance identifying and growing new customers, new products, new approaches and so on. This allows students to put classroom learning to good use.
