Our degrees are designed with flexibility in mind.

Students may also decide to start in one of our Business diploma or advanced diploma programs and transfer into the degree programs after completion of their second or third year.

With its blend of higher learning and real world practice, Co-operative Education has become a proven method to expose our next generation of graduates to a world of new ideas and different ways of working in a work place where change is accelerating and challenges are growing more complex.

Why Should My Company Hire a Co-op Student?

Some employers believe that today's graduates have no concept of the “real” world of work; we provide this opportunity through Co-operative Education. Any position that gives the student relevant work experience in their chosen field of study would be suitable for a co-op work term.

Co-operative Education students are ultimately looking ahead to careers in companies and organizations such as yours. For this reason they are eager to get involved, make a worthwhile contribution and learn from the experiences they will have at your business.

Participation in Co-operative Education also gives the employer an opportunity to try out a student's capabilities without obligation or commitment to permanent employment.

This work oriented educational system integrates academic study with paid, on-the-job work experience by alternating study terms at College and periods of employment with participating companies. It is essential that the student be treated like a regular company employee. This ensures that a realistic picture of the working environment in that field is obtained.

Perhaps more important to the educational experience is what the students gain from the working experience; an attitude for success and the ability to work with a diverse cross-section of coworkers
