Both Math and Its Applications and Financial Mathematics offer optional co-op programs. Co-op adds one extra year, but gives you a competitive edge, embedding professionally-related working experience into your degree program.
You’ll have the opportunity to gain industry experience, build a professional network, develop soft skills, and get paid — all before you graduate.
“The co-op program is nothing short of excellent. I’ve developed interpersonal skills and gained valuable work experience in statistical analysis/business intelligence and programming in multiple languages. It’s been a great confidence booster for me.”
