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

September 5, 2014

Analyzed data in support of a new business department at New Jersey City University.

In 2014, the Heldrich Center worked 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 was to help NJCU obtain data and information to better align curricula and internship programming with the local labor market. The project worked to help strategically analyze data on the industries, jobs, and skills in high demand in the Jersey City area; identified 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 identified best practices in college internship programs.
