The Sage School of Management ensures that students are prepared for life outside of the classroom. Internships are a critical step along the path to success. Over 200 students have completed internships in the past three years. These required work-based learning experiences provide students an opportunity to further develop knowledge and skills they have acquired in the classroom.
