The internship placement is beneficial for both the student and the employer.  An internship stimulates the interest and enthusiasm of an individual and prepares him/her to take on greater responsibilities.  Finlandia University's International School of Business and International School of Art and Design students complete an internship during their junior or senior year.  We ask employers to provide an opportunity for the student to be involved with the organization in a meaningful way, one that allows them to gain real experience and insight into their chosen field. In return, we ask that the student contribute to the organization by drawing upon their skill in education and creativity to help the business reach their goals. For internship information contact Denise Vandeville, International School of Art and Design 
at 906-487-7379 or e-mail denise.vandeville@Finlandia.edu. You can also contact Paula Oye, International School of Business at 906-487-7222 or e-mail at paula.oye@finlandia.edu
