Internship elective

This elective provides students the option to find their own internships and earn course credit. Some students find that completing an internship is the perfect way to secure their dream job after Hult. To help make that possible, we allow Master students on all programs to earn course credit for completing an internship during their studies. Students can opt to take the Internship Elective course during modules D and E, and then complete course work related to their internship to earn the credit. And while students are ultimately responsible for finding an internship, Hult’s dedicated Career Development team is always on hand to provide support.
