Frequently Asked Questions

The following are some frequently asked questions about our internship program at the College of Business.  For more information, contact Dr. Gail Hudson at 870-972-3430.


An internship is the opportunity for students to receive real-world experience directly related to their major field of study.  In addition to the experience, an internship can enhance students' resumes and make them more likely to get interviews and/or jobs after they graduate. 


You must have at least 9 upper-level hours in your major (12 hours if you are in accounting). These hours are over and above the core classes. Graduate students must have at least 15 graduate hours prior to doing an internship.


  • It's best to begin early or mid-way the semester before you want to do your internship. To get started, follow these steps:
  • Read the policies and guidelines on this site.
  • If you meet the criteria, complete an application form and schedule a meeting with Dr. Bevill
  • Email your resume to Dr. Bevill. If there is a specific company that has been approved by Dr. Bevill, you may email the company directly.
  • Interview with your selected company
  • If approved, the company must complete their section of the Intern Agreement Form
  • Dr. Bevill will give you approval to register for the internship course in self service
  • Follow the internship syllabus
  • Maintain communication with Dr. Bevill throughout your internship.

The College of Business does not give retroactive credit. You must be approved before starting an internship unless that internship was completed while enrolled at another university.


Under certain circumstances, students may be approved to do internships where they are currently working.  For example, if you are a bank teller, and your bank is willing to let you intern in the trust department or HR department, that may be permissible. If you have an opportunity to obtain experience directly related to your major at the place where you currently work--and it is NOT what you are currently doing--please contact Dr. Bevill to discuss this possibility further.


This depends on the internship.  While you are free to apply to only paid internships, you are limiting yourself when you do this.  Please consider the true purpose of internships before making your final decision.
