1.

Although, performance was met on the experiential learning (ADM 460 – Internship), we still believe there is room for improvement. The research writing report portion of the internship activity continues to pose problems for students, due to improper sentence structures and lack of incorporating the APA referencing styles into their reports. Each faculty in the Department of Business Administration is encouraged to assist students in these areas, as well as directing the students to the proper division for assistance.
