In addition to these specialized fields, our BBA students can also take advantage of our Co-op program or Student Abroad program. Qualified students may also apply for our Co-op Scholarships.

Co-op program

Our Business Co-op program integrates classroom studies with work experience by alternating academic semesters with four-month paid work semesters. You'll not only gain paid work experience and develop great business skills, you will also have a chance to network with professionals in the field.

Our fourth-year students are often hired before they graduate because of the great experience and contacts they acquire from our Co-op program.

By alternating study terms and paid work terms, you learn the theory you need to take into the workplace, and then apply it in an authentic business environment - before it starts to rust.

You learn to work, then work to learn.
