1.0THE INTERNSHIP REPORT AND ITS PURPOSE

The internship report may be the single most important paper you will write while a student at the College of Business. One of the several formal requirements for the MBA degree, the internship report is intended to serve both as a scholarly paper for the College of Business academic community and as a permanent record of your accomplishments as an intern. In addition, the act of preparing the report will help you get the most out of your internship experience. Writing the internship report allows you to transcend the day-to-day activities of your internship, to reflect on your experiences, and to create an account of those experiences that displays your professional skills to the best possible advantage--and in a form that you will be proud to show to potential employers next year. The operative word here is “create” -- it requires imagination as well as knowledge, insight, and analytic ability to step back from the routine assignments of the average internship to make a coherent statement about your summer’s work or about the organization where you did that work.

We do not expect you to be able to do this all on your own. The faculty has developed these guidelines to help you meet basic standards of composition as well as the particular requirements of the internship report, but they also expect you to consult with your faculty advisor early and often for specific questions of substance and form. The Writing Center (located in Humanities 2009, http://tinyurl.com/4fz2yk ) is always available for help with organizing and polishing your writing. But the ultimate responsibility is yours.

2.0THE FACULTY INTERNSHIP ADVISOR

It is very important to work closely with your faculty internship advisor, particularly if your internship does not have a clearly defined project (or has several small, partial, or shared projects) or if final data or results will not be available until after the internship is completed. Some faculty will be available for consultation during the summer, but many will be away at least part of the time, so you should arrange to consult with your advisor before leaving for the summer and again immediately after returning to school in the fall. The first draft of your report is due the second Tuesday of September, and it is definitely in your best interests to use the first week of classes to discuss with your advisor any questions or difficulties that have developed in your project or your writing. You should also be aware that faculty tolerance for missed deadlines, having been abused in the past, has disappeared. Deadlines will be strictly enforced. The deadline for final sign off of the report is the first Monday in December, and students who do not meet this deadline may not be allowed to register for the spring (see page 8 for a full timetable for submission and return of drafts).

3.0STANDARDS

Although the internship report is not a thesis in the formal sense, it must meet the same high standards of substance and form: the report must be logically organized, clearly and concisely written,...
