Students who participate in internships can apply concepts taught in the classroom, learn job-specific skills that cannot be acquired elsewhere, and build their resumes. Hofstra's proximity to New York City offers students the opportunity to gain experience in one of the world's largest financial centers.

We assist our students in identifying internships at top-tier companies by leveraging our strong alumni network, our advisory board of top global business executives, and the professionals at Hofstra's Career Center and Graduate Business Career Services. In addition, an internship coordinator in the Department of Finance supports students in finding these opportunities, and each student pursuing an internship is also assigned a faculty advisor who serves as a mentor throughout the experience.

Internships may be taken for course credit.
