  • Required pre-requisites: BUAD 300 and MKTG 337 must be completed.

** ABLE Alternative Options** FINA, INFO, and ACCT Majors

  • Students with Finance or Information Systems majors may elect to participate in an applied learning practicum or experiential course (either FINA 449 or INFO 476) to satisfy their applied learning requirement. 
  • ACCT majors complete ACCT 407 and ACCT 497 which satisfies their ABLE requirement. Some ACCT majors choose to also complete a 490 course to accumulate enough credit hours for their MD CPA license.

Please be advised: Internship-related forms that require a signature from a SU representative should be submitted to the ABLE office as they must first be reviewed by our General Counsel.  Once approved, it can only be signed by the Provost.  Note: this process may take several days.

Students are strongly discouraged against waiting until their last semester to satisfy the ABLE internship (490/497) requirement!
