Accounting Internship Program | Department of Accounting Handbook – College of Business Administration | Kent State University

Accounting Internship Program

The Accounting internship program is intended to provide students majoring in accounting at the bachelor's or master's degree levels with practical experience in public accounting, business enterprises, government or not-for-profit organizations which will make their accounting coursework more relevant, indicate how their accounting education relates to accounting practice, and give them an idea of what to expect in a future work environment. The internship experience can be obtained in the junior or senior year of the four-year program or at the senior or graduate levels as an integral part of the five-year accounting program.

The internship coordinator will be appointed by the Department Chairperson and will serve as the instructor of record for internship courses. Procedures, eligibility requirements, grading and other internship matters are maintained in the Department Office.

Changes in accounting internship procedures, eligibility requirements, grading policy and other matters will be made through appropriate curricular processes. The approved changes to the accounting internship program will become part of this Handbook without further vote.
