Internship Option 

Apply your classroom skills in the workplace and bring your workplace skills back to the classroom! An internship work term is a great opportunity to gain work experience in your field while enrolled in your academic program.

You will be joining a growing number of students who choose the opportunity to alternate between full-time studies and full-time paid work where you can bring your applied classroom learning to life.

Co-operative education is a learner-centered model that empowers you, the student, to direct your own learning and to make a valuable contribution in the workplace. Your learning will be guided and supported by both your employer and the School with a faculty member from your program assigned to coach, monitor, and evaluate your work term development.

To participate in Co-operative Education, prior to your first work term you will need to successfully complete

  • TMGT 100, TMGT 240, BUS 261, BUS 314, and HMGT 186 or HMGT 190 with a cumulative GPA of 3.0 (C+)

Talk to your Co-op & Internship Coordinator, or login to the Co-op and Career Portal to book a Co-op Information Appointment with an Employment Facilitator to get more information. Connect with your Academic Advisor to plan your program and how co-operative education can fit.
