Internships & Careers


Drake is located in Iowa’s capital – the hub of business, government and culture. Students have multiple opportunities for traditional and corporate internships. Examples of recent company internships in IS include: Allied Insurance, Automatic Data Processing, Hy-Vee, Inc., Meredith Corporation, Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Principal Financial Group, and R&R Realty Group.


Following graduation, IS majors typically start their careers as computer programmers, database administrators, network administrators, data analysts, or information systems analysts. They may also work in jobs that require a mix of business and technical expertise. Longer-term career paths may lead to managerial positions in IS or other areas outside the technology-related area.
