Study the Syllabus for Marketing Internships
The sample syllabus provides the most detailed information about the expectations, requirements, and deliverables for marketing internships. Read it carefully before seeing Dr. Abernethy.
You need to make an appointment with Dr. Avery Abernethy (firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss the potential internship. Bring the completed forms, internship description and the other materials from the “Starting Out” step.
Dr. Abernethy will discuss the internship with you. If he approves the internship, an individual syllabus will be printed for you. You will get a copy of the syllabus and the request for marketing internship with all of the signatures (including Dr. Abernethy’s). A copy will also be kept in the departmental office. You get a copy so you will know what to expect. You will be registered for the class by the marketing department office.
The Department must approve the internship before it starts. Not every marketing job provides enough skill development, helps students get future jobs, or helps their long term career to the degree needed for class credit.
Lots more details are in the syllabus. Please read it carefully.
