Salary Guidelines

We provide some sample salary data for both MBA co-op and Commerce internship work terms below.

These salaries are offered as a guideline only. Each organization sets its own salaries based on several factors including:

  • internal wage structure
  • market competition
  • student qualifications

Students are primarily interested in the quality of their work experience although they often consider salary as a means to cover accommodation and educational costs during work terms.

All salaries are quoted on a monthly basis. Salaries are not included if the work term is outside Canada. The information has been provided by participating employers.
