INTB 4800 Internship (1–3 credits)

International Business co-majors that obtain internships relating to international business are encouraged to apply for INTB 4800 credit. Students must apply before the last week of classes in the semester preceding their internship.

In order to receive three credits of INTB 4800, a student must work a total of at least 150 hours doing relevant IB work, receive a good review from their supervisor, and submit a 10-page term paper. The location can be either abroad or domestic pending approval of IB Programs Director.

UGA students interning abroad should expect to complete additional processes via the Office of Global Engagement to register their travel plans, obtain travel insurance, and be adequately oriented to live and work abroad.

ExportGA Internship Opportunity (Fall)

One of the first programs of its kind nationally, ExportGA connects Terry International Business students and local consultants with Georgia-based SMEs looking to enter foreign markets. Since its inception in 1999, ExportGA has helped over 150 companies sell in excess of $40 million all over the world.

ExportGA Internship typically occurs fall semester, including expert-led training sessions in Athens, workshops at SBDC’s office in Lawrenceville, in addition to independent work done remotely from Athens with the assigned company. There is also a mandatory debriefing session at the conclusion of the program to help interns best leverage their experience moving forward in their careers. All travel expenses can be reimbursed and breakfast is included at all workshops!

Open only to International Business co-majors, students who are admitted to the program will enroll in INTB 4800 for the term of the internship, which can be used to fulfill both the co-major immersion and elective requirements.

Finding an Internship

The Office of Global Engagement has a wealth of information on programs for interning or working globally, including UGA-approved internship programs offered by external affiliate program providers. These organizations offer internship placement and travel services for a fee. If course credit it offered, it must go through the normal transfer credit approval process, from OGE or the college.

NAFSA is a non-profit international education organization.
