This internship study was designed to help determine the effect of different management styles and structures, by studying two programs. One, housed in the MS in Accounting program, and the other housed in the Business Internship Director's office, produced statistically different results at the 5% level of significance, in intern's site ratings, critical thinking scores, use of technology, writing scores, GPAs, and hourly pay rates. Supervisor ratings, hours worked, evidence of learning in the reflection papers, and intern satisfaction were not statistically different at the 5% level of significance. There was no statistically significant difference in the success of the internships for MSA interns versus BBA interns, based on thematic analysis of the intern's reflection papers. Tests utilized were t-tests of the differences in means from standard internship records. Overall, results indicated that a single discipline internship program, produced results different from a multi-discipline program, as measured by these tests. Indications for further research include consideration of why the results were different.
