What is a Co-op?
A co-op, or work term, is a work integrated learning opportunity, that formally integrates a student’s academic studies with quality
experiences within a workplace or practice setting.
Am I placed in my Co-op position?
We do not guarantee positions, or a placement in a specific organization. Working with our Career and Professional Development (CPD) team, a Co-op student will compete and apply for positions on their own. Every MBA with Co-op student works with CPD throughout the entire application process, which leads to a secure rate ranging between 94% and 100%. We work closely with our employer partners to ensure a large amount of Co-op positions are available from which you can apply to.
