Internationalizing Cooperative Education at Clemson University.
Rosson, C. Parr, III; And Others
The international intern program at Clemson University is designed to help solve the problem of inadequate American expertise in international trade. The program seeks to: help students quality for international internships; provide the international business community with interns from various disciplines; establish a network composed of a corporate sponsor, student intern, and faculty advisor; and develop educational programs for business that focus on international trade and marketing. A total of 450 firms involved in international trade were mailed questionnaires, as were an additional 100 potential exporters. In addition, 30 firms and organizations were interviewed regarding their interest and support of an international intern position. Nineteen responded favorably, and 30 intern positions were generated by these firms. Although internship applications were heavily concentrated in engineering (39 percent), substantial progress was made toward increasing interest among other disciplines. Interest forms for the program were completed by college students, and high school students were also contacted. Conferences focusing on international economic interdependence were attended by business and government representatives to promote the international intern program. (SW)
