WHAT INTERNS HAVE TO SAY

My first thought when I found out about the iHub was, “Why isn’t everyone talking about this?”  I knew immediately that this was an opportunity that I could not pass up.  Starting as a first semester sophomore was extremely intimidating for me, but within my first day I could tell that I was going to be a valued asset of a very well-versed team.  Each and every day I was not only allowed, but encouraged, to share my input and was able to watch as that idea was brought to reality.  This hands-on experience is transforming the entire internship model allowing students to see first hand what goes into running a business. The iHub provides students an opportunity to get real-world experience at a safe distance.

Case Studies

SHU is continuing to expand its experiential learning opportunities, and one way they’re doing so it by bringing local businesses into the classroom. If the material and opportunity is the right fit, Professors are able to replace their curriculum with real-life issues challenging local companies. This classroom structure allows a company to present an issue or challenge to a class of students to work on, and allows students to see real issues and develop deliverables for companies to potentially apply to their current processes
