MIS6990: Information Systems Internship

Area of Study
Credits 4.0
The goal of this course is to provide an opportunity to the MSIS student to gain value-adding experience toward becoming a professional who is both highly self-directing and able to use consultative supervision. The internship is designed specifically to enable the MSIS student to apply classroom knowledge to the work environment, and to better prepare the student to enter the Information Systems industry. This course is a faculty supervised and evaluated field experience in the student's chosen domain of professional interest. Students will work with Career Services or the appropriate Department Chair, Program Director, or designee to identify a potential internship site location. Once an acceptable organization and site supervisor are found, South University must approve the organization to be utilized for this purpose. The Site Supervisor, student, and Faculty Coordinator, as defined in the College of Business Internship Courses Student Handbook, arrange for the student to have an opportunity to realize the goals and objectives and apply competencies of the MSIS program to real life situations. Please refer to the Internship Learning Agreement in the College of Business Internship Courses Student Handbook for further information regarding requirements prior to participating in an internship. This course is Pass/Fail.
