Online Extra: Experience Wanted


More and more, employers are hiring through their internship programs, making internships a top priority for students. However not every school is equally skilled at landing work experiences for their students. No. 26-ranked Northeastern requires student participation in a co-op program--a sort of souped up internship--virtually guaranteeing that every business major graduates with extensive work experience. Elsewhere, students aren't so lucky. Internships Rank
