This report documents an internship that was served at the Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans, Louisiana from 16 January 1989 through 7 April 1989. The purpose of the internship was to observe the administration of the internship organization in order to perform a managerial analysis. Another goal was to engage in administrative tasks in order to gain practical experience at a managerial level. The Aquarium of the Americas is a department of the Audubon Institute, which, in turn, is supervised by the Audubon Park Commission. As a result, those organizations are also included as subjects for analysis. The internship is a requirement of the graduate program in Arts Administration at the University of New Orleans.
