Designed to complement Q-camp from sophomore year, students will develop key strategies toward a successful summer internship.

Summer internship, are you ready? This one-day conference is designed to give University of Richmond business students a competitive edge during their summer internship. Regardless of whether you have secured an internship or not, all business students are strongly encouraged to attend.

At the end of Q2, students will be able to:

  • Recall expectations for internship success
  • Build relationships with alumni and corporate partners
  • Define three strategies to effectively manage their brand

All junior business students can apply.
