Internship and Mentorship Program

Gain experience with Adelphi’s Internship and Mentorship Program.

We’ve built a new program specifically to help business students through the process of applying for internships and mentor them during their internship.


Why Intern?

95%
internships obtained by our business students paid students a stipend.

One of the most important things that an undergraduate can do while in college is intern. For good reason, employers consistently rate internship experience as the #1 desired criterion for new employees. This is because completing internships allow students to:

  • Explore their career options and professional interests
  • Put classroom knowledge into real world practice
  • Acquire professional experience and build their résumés
  • Network with experienced professionals and potential mentors
  • Develop marketable skills and self-confidence

Why Mentor?

  • Mentees gain invaluable insight beyond their own education and experience
  • Access to a support system during critical stages of your academic and career development
  • Identification of skill gaps
  • Clearer understanding and enhancement of academic and career plans

An Adelphi education places a special emphasis on students’ acquisition of practical experience. We encourage students to complete multiple internships prior to graduation, and we strive to provide students with the best resources through which to find internships and make the most of their internship experiences.
