MGT-5395 Application

Interested in a Graduate Business Internship? This is your first step.

Thank you for your interest in MGT-5395, the Graduate Business Internship course. This class is approved on a case-by-case basis for MBA students, MSHRM students and, in rare instances, students in non-business graduate programs. It provides three (3) hours of elective credit. Internships at your current employer require additional documentation and are only approved if very specific criteria are met. Internships at family business and at companies with fewer than 10 employees are rarely approved.

Before you submit this form, please note the following requirements:

  • You must be in good academic standing with a graduate GPA of at least 3.0.
  • At the time your internship begins you must have completed at least 12 hours toward your graduate degree if your undergraduate degree was a non-business discipline. If you hold a BBA or other business undergraduate degree this requirement may be reduced to nine (9) hours.
  • You may not enroll in more than 2 additional courses while you are performing your internship.

If feel that you meet these requirements please complete and submit the form below. If you have additional questions please contact the course instructor, Matt Painter, mpainter@txstate.edu.
