Redlands Students Snag Competitive Summer Internships

Two Redlands students have snagged highly competitive summer internships with the Boeing Corporation.

Students Danielle Topping and Andrew Lazarz will both work in the commercial aircraft sector of the company this summer, marking the fourth consecutive year that at least one Redlands student has secured a Boeing internship.

Danielle is a business administration and economics major. She is active in the university’s Investment Club and SPURS, an organization for women that serves the university and community. Andrew is a varsity soccer player, a tutor and a former summer intern for Tilden-Coil Constructors, Inc.

The pair will receive the details of their assignments later this month, after they travel to Seattle to participate in a round of interviews with Boeing management.

Jack Osborn, professor and Hunsaker Chair of Management, said the internship appointments say volumes about Danielle and Andrew’s capabilities – as well as the preparation they have received at Redlands.

“This is one of the most competitive and selective undergraduate business internship competitions in the United States today,” he said. “This speaks highly of the caliber of our students, their instructors and the degree programs, across departments.”

Redlands has had a strong relationship with Boeing, a national and international leader in aerospace and defense, for years. Professors have led seminars for Boeing managers and staff, and the university also offers on-site classes to employees at Boeing’s El Segundo location.
