UWSP School of Business and Economics Internship Expo – Fall 2021
A group of 26 fall interns from the UW-Stevens Point School of Business and Economics presented about their experiences during the SBE Internship Expo in the Dreyfus University Center Laird Room on Dec. 8, 2021.
The event is an effort from the Anderson Classroom to Career Center and made possible thanks in part to a $1 million gift from Keith ’85 and Tammy Anderson. Keith joined the event via Zoom from Virginia to provide inspiration to all.
Interns shared about what their duties were, what they learned, how courses prepared them and more. Placement of internships ranged from small family-owned accounting firms to insurance corporate headquarters; some worked remotely while others attended in-person.
SBE students are required to complete an internship before graduation–many complete more than one. These experiences create opportunities for growth and the development of new skills, and over 65% of our interns are getting job offers are a result of their internships.
