Students in this program will gain hands-on experience using software from SAP – the world’s leading supplier of enterprise resource planning software.

Co-operative education option (Co-op)

The co-op option adds value to your education by providing an opportunity to combine classroom learning and real-world experience. This option provides students with paid work-term alternating with academic terms.

Students interested in pursuing the co-op option will have the opportunity to apply during the first semester. Co-op program standards selection into the BSOM co-op is competitive and will be determined by first semester grades, resume, and interview. Once students have been admitted into the co-op option there is an additional fee that must be paid to the college.

Co-op students have a shared responsibility for securing employment. Students are responsible for their own transportation and associated costs in order to complete work term requirements and work locations may not always be readily accessible by public transportation.
