Data and Analysis to Support the Development of New Jersey City University’s Business Department and Internship Program

Friday, September 5, 2014

The Heldrich Center is working with New Jersey City University (NJCU) on a project designed to inform the development of the internship program and curriculum review in NJCU’s new business department. The goal of this effort is to help NJCU obtain the data and information they need to better align curricula and internship programming with the local labor market. The project will work to help strategically analyze data on the industries, jobs, and skills in high demand in the Jersey City area; to identify industries that have employed large numbers of NJCU graduates in recent years, with a focus on identifying the impact of internships on student employment outcomes; and to identify best practices in college internship programs.
