Thanks to the real-world experience students are exposed to at Harrisburg University, our graduates compete with seasoned job applicants because they have the know-how employers are looking for before they enter the workforce.

Unlike most schools, graduate and undergraduate students at HU must tackle at least one experiential learning course and a hands-on applied project in their field before they graduate. Undergraduates also must complete an internship before earning their degrees.

Senior Management, Entrepreneurship, and Business Administration (MEBA) major, Frederick Russell, completed his internship with Upper Darby-based Visionaries Inc., from May to August of 2020. Visionaries Inc. is a youth organization that hosts events, provides community services, and creates motivational skits for youth.

Russell shared the following about his internship experience: 

“My tasks were to come up with different marketing strategies, marketing content, and I helped with film production,” Russell said. “Through my internship, I learned how to capture different audiences and direct/edit film productions. These new skills are helping me, as I am a film director for a production company.”
