The Robert A. Day 4 + 1 BA/MBA Program

Curriculum

Internships

In addition to the required coursework, students in the Day 4 + 1 Program complete two summer internships. The customized internships combine theory and practice - a strong tradition at CMC. Students complete one internship during the summer after the junior year and one following graduation from CMC, prior to the graduate year. The internships are concentrated periods of work where students develop professionally while gaining exposure to issues involved in the practice of management. Each internship is designed to give students management experience and includes an academic component where faculty members guide students in applying theory to the practice of management.

Companies that have previously sponsored summer internships include:

  • Abercrombie & Fitch
  • Bear Sterns
  • CBS
  • Deloitte & Touche
  • Ernst & Young
  • Merrill Lynch
  • Morgan Stanley
  • PricewaterhouseCoopers
  • Trust Company of the West
  • Universal Studios
  • Wells Fargo
  • William M. Mercer


The internships are of sufficient breadth and depth to offer a rigorous educational experience, support an academic project, and provide meaningful outcomes for the student and sponsoring organization. Students return from internships with experiences and insights that they share in classroom discussions.

The internships are designed to provide students with enriching experiences that will serve them well in both their professional goals and personal development. Internships offer opportunities for students to:

  • Gain exposure to a range of occupations
  • Test possible career choices
  • Apply knowledge gained in classes
  • Meet and learn from professionals
  • Develop a network of contacts
  • Work under faculty supervision on a real world problem
