Ohio Christian University Announces Internship Program Circleville: Ohio Ohio Christian University President, Dr. Mark Smith announced a business internship program today as part of the new business program at Ohio Christian University. The Business Internship Program is designed to allow local employers and OCU’s top business students an opportunity to match realworld business experience with students’ interests and capabilities. OCU business students are required to obtain a business internship during their junior or senior years with an emphasis on exposure to management principles. Students receive academic credit while obtaining hands-on-experience on how a business operates in today’s challenging economy. Depending on the business opportunity and the length of the engagement, students may be offered paid or unpaid internships since they receive academic credit for the experience. In addition to business internships, OCU Business students may perform a limited number of no-cost small business consulting engagements under the supervision of OCU Business Department professors in lieu of a business internship. Currently, two seniors, Brittany Martin & Jillian Weimer are performing a consulting engagement for the Pickaway County Welcome Center, as part of the Business Internship Program. Business students at OCU have a wide range of business disciplines under the new business program. They may now major in 5 business concentrations; Business Administration (accounting & finance), Business Management, Logistics & Supply Chain, International Business, and General Business. Employers who are willing to engage OCU Business students for a limited period in their business and expose them to the challenges of managing a business are asked to contact OCU’s Business Department Chair, David Garrison at 740-477-7741 or dgarrison@ohiochristian.edu.
