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 should also provide the initial offer letter provided by the internship employer to the student.
