Online Extra: Experience Wanted

Not all undergraduate business programs are created equal, at least not when it comes to finding internships for students

More and more, employers are hiring through their internship programs, making internships a top priority for students. However not every school is equally skilled at landing work experiences for their students. No. 26-ranked Northeastern requires student participation in a co-op program--a sort of souped up internship--virtually guaranteeing that every business major graduates with extensive work experience. Elsewhere, students aren't so lucky.
