For more than forty years, DeGroote’s MBA co-op program has given students the opportunity to showcase their knowledge, skills, work ethic and leadership potential in the business world. The success of the program is due in large part to the strong partnerships we have with employers across Canada.
Co-op students are ideal for working on special projects in your organization, but work terms can also be used to cover short-term leaves and other operational responsibilities.
