About The Management Internship Program


Management education strives  to provide students with a balance between theory and "real world" applications. The traditional classroom partially achieves this balance for students through varied pedagogical methods such as role-play, exercises and case studies. However, these valid learning techniques cannot duplicate the dynamic environment in which managerial decisions are made.

The Management Internship Program provides students with an experiential learning opportunity. Internships provide students with the opportunity to apply "theory" in the dynamic environment of an organization. Through the participating companies, students achieve professional work experience under the mentoring of managerial practitioners and faculty.

Students in the Management Internship Program must participate in several seminars conducted by the assigned Internship faculty. Additionally, students must complete a minimum of 150 hours (10 hours per week for 15 weeks, the length of the semester) working at a host organization. Students desiring to work beyond the 150-hour minimum must have the approval of the individual's Academic Advisor, Internship Coordinator, and Host Organization Supervisor.

Students may apply the credits earned in the Internship course as one of the required electives in within the Management, Financial, Accounting, Marketing or MIS disciplines.

For more information please check out the Management Internship Booklet or contact Doug Reed, Internship Coordinator, at dougreed@pitt.edu.


Check Out Our "In Action" Gallery

Part of the requirements for the internship program is that all interns must submit a photograph of themselves on the job.  Periodically, I will add new pictures to the "In Action" gallery.  Come view pictures of your fellow students and friends who have already completed the internship program.  If you are currently an intern, and haven't sent in your picture to me yet, please email it to me as soon as possible.  Thanks and enjoy!
