INTERNSHIPS & CO-OP SUPPORT Department of Career Planning and Development

FLIGHT ACADEMY The Flight Academy engagement platform will help you keep a log of the outside of classroom activities that support your academic journey. You will complete activities and attend events to earn points and badges that can later be shared with potential employers. Participation, reflection, and engagement will help develop your abilities and teach you to listen to and learn from a wide variety of perspectives. Show up with intention and an open mind and you will be surprised by what you find. Launched to deliver the BUSA courses in Fall 2019, in the Fall Semester of 2020 the platform will begin an expansion to include student organizations, leadership, group competitions and more.

Academic Advising at the Coles College of Business is pro-active and solution-oriented. To help you navigate throughout your KSU Career, it is critical to meet with your Advisor periodically to stay on track. Each conversation is an opportunity to connect and ensure that nothing stands in the way of your dreams!

Internships & co-ops are valuable tools in translating classroom theory to real-life skill. IIn partnership with the Department of Career Planning and Development, we are proud to offer Coles College students dedicated internship and co-op advisors.
