Internship

The internship must be based on business procedures

The paid internship is perhaps the most memorable and critical component in the Academy of Finance experience. It is also one of the most rewarding, as it is the opportunity for students to apply what they have learned in their Academy of Finance classes in the preceding years. The end result is essentially to have an enriching educational experience outside of the classroom.

A paid internship is an extension of the Academy of Finance classroom instruction and curriculum that further develops and challenges the student in a business environment.  The internship is supervised by business leaders in a real-world setting. Paid internships allow students to apply what they have learned in the classroom, and establishes a valuable foundation for any career the student chooses to pursue in the future.

The student will complete their internship over the summer before senior year or during their senior school year. Although it is the students job to get an internship as well as maintain the internship, the school's internship coordinator (Mrs. Phillips) assists and monitors the student to ensure success.
