Supply Chain Internships

Internships are an important way to get hands-on experience with the principles you learn in the classroom, which is why they are a requirement of our supply chain program. Companies based in Northwest Arkansas are among the best in the world when it comes to supply chain management, so these internships not only prepare you for your career but often lead to a job once you graduate.

Internship Eligibility

To enroll for academic credit in SCMT3103, the internship must be approved in advance of the work. Students must start by filling out an internship application.

Students must work at least 240 hours during their internship to get credit.

Applications require a description of the internship, including the objectives, employment window and expected hours, as well as contact information for your direct supervisor. Your supervisor will also be contacted to verify that they are overseeing your internship and you provided correct information. Additionally, the employing firm must provide a significant supply chain work experience with adequate training and supervision of the work performed by the student. Without an approved application by your employer, you cannot be considered for enrollment in SCMT 3103.
