At Stuart School of Business, students at all levels—undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral—gain valuable work experience and expand their career networks through internships with a wide range of Chicago businesses, organizations, and governmental agencies.

For our undergraduates, Illinois Tech’s Elevate Your Future initiative guarantees real-world, hands-on experiences like internships, study away, and research opportunities.

For all Stuart students, connections developed by Career Management Center staff and Stuart faculty, as well as through the large community of Stuart and Illinois Tech alumni, pave the way for students to land internships that are substantive and, in many cases, lead to job offers for graduates.

Recent internship placements have included BMO Harris Bank, Societe Generale, IRI Worldwide, CME Group, Deloitte, Amway, Exelon, Snips Media, Navy Pier, and Wintrust Financial Corp., to name just a few.

Staff at the Stuart Career Management Center can assist students in finding and applying for internships. Click on the button below for more information and internship forms and timelines.

“While at Deutsche Boerse/Eurex as a business data analyst intern, I was responsible for gathering data and compiling reports for salespeople and clients. As someone who wants to work in the derivatives space, it was an interesting and unique experience because it showed me the inner workings of a derivatives exchange, and how different derivative products are created, marketed, and used.”
