Co-op Program Option

Co-op work placements offer an opportunity to earn while you learn and apply principles learned in class within a working environment. 

To be eligible for the co-op option, students must complete a minimum of four courses, be a full time student in good standing with no failing grades, and normally obtained a minimum CGPA of 75% before applying.

The co-op option consists of two work terms; either two separate four month work terms or one eight month work term. An option to complete a third work term is available. You are expected to submit a work term report after the successful completion of each placement. To successfully complete a Co-op work term and receive a grade of "P" (Pass) for each of MBA 801, 802, 803*, students must successfully complete the required work placement, including an evaluation of feedback from the employer, and attain a passing grade on their associated work term report.

Should you achieve a placement, your co-op fee will be assessed in the semester that you are registered for your work term. The Graduate Business co-op fee is set at the same rate charged for undergraduate co-op students, plus full time mandatory student fees according to the fee schedule, as well as the International Surcharge where applicable. 

Although the student's actual schedule may vary, the first Co-op work placement must normally be taken during a Fall semester.

Students will not normally be permitted to register for more than one course during a Co-op work term.  A student's program must end on an academic term, not on a Co-op work term.

*Students may complete third optional Co-op work term, MBA 803
