CO-OP OPTIONS

Business Meeting

Internship, Co-op and Future Graduate Recruitment

Think about engaging with our co-op and internship students who will bring enthusiasm and new perspectives to your organization. Students join your team eager to apply the skills they have developed through their course work at DeGroote and their own past experiences.

When you recruit a high-caliber DeGroote commerce student you get an energetic, diligent intern who brings core technical skills and excellent academic training to your organization.

Our undergraduate internship program has start dates, May to September. Should a student begin in May, they must complete either a 12- or 16-month internship. If they begin in September, the internship must be 12 months in length. All students who participate have completed three years of academic study and must return to campus at the completion of their internship for their graduating academic year.

Students in the internship program have successfully completed the third year of their undergraduate commerce degree and have maintained or exceeded a cumulative average of 72%.

MBA Co-op Program

For more than forty years, DeGroote’s MBA co-op program has given students the opportunity to apply their knowledge, skills, work ethic, and leadership potential in the business world.

Our students are carefully screened through the program’s admissions process and come from a variety of academic backgrounds including commerce, science, engineering, and the arts.

The Co-op program combines four academic semesters with a total of 12 months of work experience. The work terms may be completed in the traditional sequencing of three 4-month work terms, or through longer work terms of eight months (depending on employer needs and the student’s course sequence) and we have work terms commencing in January, May and September.
