Full-Time, Five-Year Co-Op Program

The Economics and Management Science Major offers an optional co-op program which provides graduates with 16 months of work experience integrated into their academic program. Students wishing to be considered for this program must apply for admission into the co-op option during the fifth semester of the program.

Admission into the co-op program is based on the following four items:

  1. Minimum CGPA of 3.0 (or higher). Subject to competition, grades above the minimum may be required
  2. Evidence of superior oral and written communication skills
  3. Interview with the Faculty Advisor
  4. Resume/CV

Students commence work terms upon completion of third year of the Business Management program and the co-op option extends the Economics and Management Science major to five years from four. The Economics Department cannot guarantee work term jobs, but the Office of Co-operative Education and the Department will prospect for employers and make every effort to locate suitable positions, as well as be available to advise students on their search for program-related jobs. The co-op program enables students to earn prevailing wages for the level of responsibility and contribution of the jobs they perform and thus finance at least part of their university education.
