Internships ›

Internships play a massive role in departments across the entire College of Business. Featured to the left is PJ Barnes, who recently interned with the Tennessee Small Business Development Center. Below is the testimonial he provided about his internship experience.

“I gained so many personal and business skills over the last year. I have been able to look at the ins and outs of businesses, which has helped me start my own business. I have also developed some more tangible skills like marketing, SEO, website design, photography, and videography. My communication skills have also vastly improved over the last year. Without this internship, I wouldn’t know what a professional, or even business casual workplace would be like. It changed the way I am preparing for after I graduate."
