MOS Internships 

The Management and Organizational Studies program offers an Industry Internship Program (IIP) for those students interested in gaining practical experience.

In this program, students spend 8 to 16 months working in industry between their third and fourth years of their Management and Organizational Studies (MOS) program. Prior to this, students must complete a number of steps and meet specific criteria to ensure they are approved to participate in the IIP. You can read more about benefits, enrollment steps, qualifications, and schedules here.

Upon completion of an internship, a report is submitted to the Coordinator, Careers & Internships. Returning students also complete a short presentation to a 3rd year MOS class where students can share their perspectives on your internship experience. This presentation will cover where the returning student worked, what their job entailed, and the value of their internship experience.

Interested tudents MUST attend one information session and one resume workshop.  Huron students need to have a resume review with Meg Pirie.  Students must meet all requirements by November 30th.  

All sessions are in SSC on main campus (Social Science Centre).
