Academy Students Spent Summer Working

Real World Information
Learning New Skills
Real World Experience
Academy of Business and Finance students put their classroom skills and training to work during the summer at paid internships. Students entering their senior year were eligible for the program and gained insight into the working world. Their computer applications coursework proved valuable for the work they had to do using Microsoft Word to create documents, Microsoft Excel to create spreadsheets and Microsoft Publisher to create flyers and other publications. They worked in sales and marketing, accounting, computer work, and normal daily office duties. 
The internship providers said they were very impressed by NT students and that many of the students did better work and were more reliable than college interns they had worked with. On the flip side of that, the students were amazed by the experience. “The skills I obtained from my internship will be with me for the rest of my life,” said one student, Adam K. Many times the students are offered jobs by the internship provider because they are now a proven asset to the company!

Some of the internship providers we partner with are Tops Corporate Office, Niagara Regional Federal Credit Union, Life Touch Studios, Bryant and Stratton College, State Farm Insurance, NT City School, BJ’s Wholesale, Key Bank and First Niagara Bank.
