Many Resource/Managerial Economics students choose to participate in internships during their undergraduate careers. Internships are a fantastic way to apply academic knowledge to the work setting while simultaneously building your resume, making professional connections, and exploring possible career interests. Internships may occur any time of year. Many students secure 10-20 hour internships during Fall or Spring semester while others opt to work up to 40 hours a week during winter break or the summer months. Some find opportunities on-campus, some work remotely from their computers, and others travel to office sites. Recent undergraduate internship sites include:
Accept Solar, ALKU, AvalonBay, Crystaphase, Dell, Eversource, Federal Reserve Bank, FICO, Fresenius Medical Care, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, Liberty Mutual, MASSPIRG, Mass Port Authority, Morgan Stanley, Raven Marketing, State Street, TJX Companies, Trip Advisor, UMass Donahue Institute
Students also have the option to earn academic credit for internship experiences. To learn more about earning academic credit for internships please read our Undergraduate Internship Process Student Guide.
