Work Placement

Optional Co-op Work Placement Program

There are a limited number of spaces for students to mix co-op work experience with their academic learning in alternating semesters through an optional co-op program. This co-op program is structured to include between one and three co-op work terms, taking place in between academic terms. Participation in the co-op program may increase time to complete the diploma by one to three semesters. If accepted, the optional co-op program includes an opportunity for students to gain valuable experience through up to three paid work terms. Co-op work opportunities are not guaranteed, as students are in a competitive job placement market.

Students not selected for co-op placements will complete the standard 84-hour work placement course in their final semester. Through this course, they will put their accounting knowledge and skills into practice. Students find a placement with support from the business placement advisor who maintains a roster of placement opportunities and provides students with direction and assistance in the development of resumes and job search techniques.
