An internship in the not-for-profit sector is required. The internship does not need to be taken for academic credit. An internship completed for a student's major (e.g., MGMT 484, MKTG 484, FINC 484, ISYS 484, SCMT 484 or ACCT 484) may be applied to this certificate provided it is with a not-for-profit organization. No more than 20% of work can be clerical or unrelated to the development of professional skills in the not-for-profit world. The internship must offer meaningful, professional-level opportunities to apply business knowledge and skills.
Note: Exceptions based on course offerings require Certificate Coordinator approval.
