More than 400 companies—ranging from Fortune 500 companies to entrepreneurial organizations—recruit interns from the Wisconsin BBA Program.

The right internship can be an important step toward achieving your career goals. Internships provide essential real-world experience, boost your résumé, and give you a start on a professional network. Many Wisconsin BBA students are able to land internships early in their academic career, completing multiple internships during their undergraduate years. Many internships will lead to a full-time offer with the employer.

Paid internships can help offset the cost of a college education. More than 90 percent of the internships completed by Wisconsin BBA students are paid internships. The pay rate will vary based on industry and location, but students typically earn an average of approximately $18 per hour.

“In terms of finding internships, the networking opportunities in the Wisconsin School of Business are unmatched. Other schools don’t have nearly the connections and resources that we have as business students.”
