Internship FAQs

Who places students in internships?

It is the primary responsibility of the student to find an internship.

However, the School of Data Science works hard to assist all students during their search. At the beginning of each semester, eligible students who are actively seeking internship placements can submit their resume to our resume book. This book is then shared with industry partners and interested employers for consideration. We also share many internship opportunities and recruitment session information with students via email.

Are internships paid?

It depends on the organization.

If I am currently employed, how do I complete the internship requirement?

Completing the internship course (DSBA 6400) is a requirement for graduation.

In the past, students who were completing their degree while working full-time have coordinated with their employers to complete an internship project within the organization.

Alternatively, students would complete an internship project through working with an academic entity on UNC Charlotte’s campus.

If you have additional questions regarding full-time employment and the internship requirement, please contact SDS Executive Director, Doug Hague.
