In 2016, our Robert B. Willumstad School of Business placed 301 students in internships—a jump of more than 130 percent over 2015. That means that about one-third of Adelphi’s undergraduate business students held internships at more than 200 organizations across Long Island, and we’re pushing for even more in New York City. Equally impressive is that 98 percent of the internships are paid.
