The Co-operative Education Program

Faculty of Business and Economics

Imagine the opportunity to obtain paid work in your field while you are still attending classes at the UWinnipeg!  You would be able to earn money, discover what it's like to do professional work in your stream, build a robust resume and portfolio and a strong network of professionals!  Many Co-op students are successful in being hired post-graduation by the firms they worked for as a student.

The University of Winnipeg Co-operative Education Program offers students the chance to gain full-time, meaningful, and paid employment options while they attend their academic studies.  These opportunities allow students to gain valuable hands-on work experience directly related to their area of study.  The Co-op Program is open to the Department of Economics students, The Department of Business Administration students and the Department of Applied Computer Science students. If your area of study is outside of these three, please contact the Co-op Office to arrange a meeting to discuss your suitability for the program.
