Business Internship


In today’s workplace, employers are looking for graduates with work experience who can quickly play a significant role and help the organisation achieve its objectives. Undertaking an internship component as part of your USC degree helps you prepare to meet these expectations.

The Business Internship course (BUS331 Business Internship) is an elective course on offer to students in their final year of studies in any of the undergraduate programs on offer in the School of Business.

It provides an opportunity for students to obtain academic credit for a course at university at the same time as gaining valuable experience in the workplace prior to completing their studies and seeking employment in their chosen field.
