Welcome to the School of Business Internship Program, Employers

Partner with the School of Business credit-bearing internship program at Farmingdale State College

A selective, competitive program for top-tier business students.


What is a credit-bearing internship?

A credit-bearing internship is more than just a job; it's a valuable employment experience. Held in a professional setting, students are able to explore and learn about their specific field of study. While students intern, they are also enrolled in an internship class, where they learn to support a company's mission and goals and to develop professionally. Students will also complete assignments based on their experiences throughout the semester to earn credit, while employers are expected to provide a hands-on learning experience.


Benefits of being a Farmingdale State College internship partner:

  • Increase your presence by mentoring the prospective workforce
  • Our interns offer a unique perspective coupled with a 21st century skill set
  • Spend less time looking for strong candidates for employment by training interns preparing to launch a career in your industry  
  • Meet other partners and build a lasting relationship with FSC’s School of Business by participating in a virtual forum to help determine the knowledge and skill sets needed in the future  
  • Keep the talent on Long Island. Give students the experience they need to be able to live and work on the island they love.

What to expect:

  • Engage with pre-screened students who are prepared to work in a professional environment for a minimum of 100 hours within the semester (Fall semester runs from late August to early December; spring semester runs from late January to early May; and the summer semesters run from May to mid-August).
  • Approve weekly timesheets and complete two evaluations for the intern.
  • Commit to a brief site visit to meet with the Internship Coordinator.
  • Expect students from the following degree program areas: Business Management, Business Analytics, Global Business Management, Computer Programming and Information Systems, Computer Science, Applied Economics, Sports Management, Horticultural Technology Management, Visual Communications: Art & Graphic Design, and Interaction Design.

When to get started:

  • Now! Employers may apply at any time. Students intern every semester, including during the summer.
