Such positions may be compensated or uncompensated. Positions that may qualify could include on-campus positions offered by Rowan University or the College of Business, off-campus positions publicized by the Supervised Internship Program, or positions secured through a student's own efforts. Final approval of the position rests with the supervising faculty member within the student's area of specialization.
