- Transferable skills sought by employers
- Essential job search skills
- An opportunity to explore career interests before graduation
- One full credit towards your degree

Who is eligible and when to apply
The internship is open to all Bachelor of Management students and is optional. Though you apply during your second year, the internship begins after your third year of study.
Where will you do your Internship?
We encourage you to consider a wide variety of locations, industries, and sectors. Whether it's at a large multi-national corporation or a small not-for-profit organization – in Nova Scotia, throughout Canada, or abroad – we can help you narrow your interests and provide focus on the best internship opportunities for you.
Though internships are not guaranteed, you will be assigned a Career and Recruitment Specialist (CRS) from our Management Career Services (MCS) team who will assist you in securing your internship. Your CRS will connect with you during your internship to assess your progress and encourage continuous learning and development. An internship report will be required to successfully complete the internship.
