The Mount has a co-op component in the following programs: business administration, public relations and tourism & hospitality management. Business administration and public relations students are available each semester for co-op work terms (January – April, May – August and September – December). Tourism students complete summer work terms only (May – August or May – mid October). Public policy, arts and science interns are also available in the summer for paid internship work terms.
Mount co-op students are ambitious professionals who are eager to contribute to your team. Hiring a student gives you the chance to shape careers and provide valuable mentorship to new talent. It also creates a pipeline for future employment opportunities in your organization.
As a co-op employer, you play an integral role in your student’s education. Your feedback, guidance and mentorship are key to the success of the co-op term. Your role as an employer will be to assist your student in establishing a Personal Learning Plan for the co-op term, to participate in the midterm work site visit with a university representative, to provide guidance on the student’s work term project, and to evaluate the student’s progress at the end of the co-op term.
