About This Program
The University of Missouri offers two course options of (3 credits) in international business.
UNIVERSITY OF MISSOURI COURSE OFFERING
This international internship program will help you gain valuable professional experience while being immersed in the vibrant culture of Sydney. In addition to earning up to three academic credits for your internship, you will make professional connections and apply classroom knowledge in a real-world setting. You will improve your cross-cultural communication skills and gain the flexibility, confidence, and independence to navigate a foreign culture.
Most departments and majors have internship credits available. You are required to enroll in internship credits. You will create a work schedule with your internship sponsor that meets the internship requirements established by your academic department. Check with your academic advisor to verify the number of credits for which you qualify. Many full-time internships will take place Monday–Thursday during regular business hours; however, some internships, especially cultural and hospitality management internships may require a more flexible schedule.
You will enroll separately for internship credit in the academic unit of your choice. Trulaske students may use this internship experience to fulfill the requirements of:
BA 4500 – Professional Edge - Internship
MGMT 4940 - Professional Management Internship
PRE-DEPARTURE CLASSES AT MU
Prior to the start of the program, pre-departure class sessions will be held in Cornell Hall, beginning in April.

This is a non-credit course for which you will be required to register before the first day of the pre-departure class, in order to go on the program. You will not be charged any educational fees for this “course”. When registering – search in “additional criteria” for the Class Number only.
