Internship Track and Curricular Practical Training


The Internship Track allows for the student to overlay the academic and theoretical study of Data Analytics with practical experience in the field. Students have the means to apply academic concepts to solve real world business problems. The Internship is designed for students to better understand the work expectations and individual organizational culture. Students and their Internship organization must be approved by the MS Data Analytics Program Director prior to the start of the internship, and take an Internship course or courses. Internship courses have variable credit and are MG 5901 through MG5904. Internship credits that are earned are applied in addition to the 40 credits that are required for the MS-DA Program, for a maximum of 44 credits.

Students with F-1 visa status who wish to take part in the Internship Track should work closely with their International Student Advisors regarding the use of Curricular Practical Training (CPT). CPT authorization can only be issued after an internship agreement is completed, and this authorization is an important step to be sure that all off-campus employment is authorized and well-documented. Please contact your International Student Advisor with any questions.
