At NSU, up to 12 hours of college credit may be granted for an internship experience. These credits can count toward general electives or upper division business electives. Northern State University is located in Aberdeen, S.D., which has the largest population and economic base of any university in the South Dakota regental system. As a direct result, there are innumerable internship opportunities right here in Aberdeen. However, as the state's sole Center of Excellence in International Business, interns have been placed all across the country and around the world. Over 98 percent of business majors with internship experience find employment within their field within three months of graduation, and most with the firm with which they interned.
One of the greatest advantages a student can have when entering the workforce for the first time is EXPERIENCE! And a great way to get that experience is through a college internship.
