The Dolan School of Business views practical experience as an important part of every student’s academic program. An internship gives students the opportunity to apply classroom theories to real-world situations and use on-the-job experiences to enrich their academic programs.   At Fairfield University we aim to partner with businesses and organizations to ensure that the internship experience is mutually beneficial for company sponsors and the students.  Learn more about how your business can become involved in our internship program.
