Lacy School Internships

Two Internships Required

Each business student completes two internships for academic credit. These internships give you valuable work experience and an advantage over the competition. While many business schools don't even require one internship, you'll graduate with experience and networking connections.

The Andre B. Lacy School of Business has a network of internship companies that expands every year, and a majority of our graduates attribute their first post-grad position to one of their internships.  

Important Information

  • Internships must be at least 240 hours
  • All internships must be approved by the Lacy School of Business
  • Pre-approved internships can be found on Handshake. If you find an internship outside of this approved list, bring it to your career mentor for approval.
  • You must have 60 credit hours to complete an internship for credit, including at least 12 Lacy School credits at the 300-level or above.
  • You must have completed the first 300-level course in your major.
  • To receive credit you must be enrolled in LSB 401 or LSB 402, a three credit hour course
  • Grades are determined by class assignments and professionalism, which is partly based on employer evaluations

Student Experiences

My internships with Delta Faucet Company in Indianapolis and in Shanghai offered me the ability to learn more about how corporate businesses operate internationally. I had the opportunity to help Delta Faucet plan for one of the largest Kitchen and Bath Trade Shows in China and served as a liaison in developing Delta Faucet-China's first ever price book, which was a very neat process. I traveled all around the cities of Shanghai and Beijing with my Butler peers interning within the city as well and had the experience of a lifetime. I expressed my interest in interning abroad in Shanghai with Delta Faucet Company, and the University took a special interest in me and made it happen with my current employer. If it wasn't for Butler, this tremendous opportunity would not have existed.

The Lacy School of Business prepared me so well for my internship with the Johnson & Johnson Target team that I was already taking on projects that full-time business analysts typically do. Working alongside directors and vice presidents, I got to use my critical thinking skills and make real business decisions. My internship with Johnson & Johnson helped me to define my career path.
