Welcome to Dalton State’s “Business in Action” internship program. Our objective is to match our Wright School of Business students with employers who provide valuable business-related work experience and college credit- in exchange we grant employers access to our pool of talented business students.
Our Business in Action internship program provides students with work experiences that can be “building blocks” for their careers. The program is open to student’s enrolled in Dalton State’s Wright School of Business who have a current 2.5 GPA or higher and have completed nine upper division credits, including three courses in the internship’s major field.
Dalton State’s C. Lamar and Ann Wright School of Business is accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB), an achievement fewer than five percent of business schools have in the world to obtain; so our students are well- prepared for internship placements.
