McGaughy Internship & Professional Development Center


The McGaughy Center manages the working relationships between interning CBE students, their supervising faculty and their host internship company.  CBE students follow a strategic progression when preparing for their required-for-graduation internships, including seminars, cover letter and resume preparation, communication with faculty, preparation of contractual documents, and much more. 

Internships allow students to enhance their classroom education with real world experiential learning, while adding value to hosting internship companies, by applying their technical and professional skills to projects and assignments .  As such, internships are a "win-win" for students and their hosting internship companies, with both gaining valuable benefits.

Information for:


Internships in CA and KY will not be approved for academic credit. For more information see Longwood's Accreditation and Compliance: State Authorization.

Student Interns are required to take Management 391: Professional Development Skills Calls where they will engage in Mock Interviews, get hands-on at an Etiquette Dinner and participate in a golf clinic, before completing their internship.
