University of Delaware students are now getting real-world business experience with JPMorgan Chase & Co. without ever leaving their campus in Newark.

The News Journal reports the university has unveiled the JPMorgan Chase Innovation Center this semester where about 15 student interns are working beside two full-time bankers. Jennifer McDermott, one of the bankers from JPMorgan, says they hope the program becomes a pipeline for new talent.

The bank provided $5 million to launch the partnership with the Lerner College of Business and Economics.

Scott Malinowski, a computer engineering major, was one of the first interns hired. He is working on a project that provides nonprofits with technology assistance.

Malinowski is building a document management system for the archives of the new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington.
