Participation in the Co-operative Education program - which enables students to acquire knowledge, practical skills for employment, workplace experience, and an opportunity to build a network of potential employers - is mandatory for MPA On Campus students. MPA On Campus students complete two work terms (a work term normally consists of four months of full-time, paid employment), and students undertake study and work terms in alternating sessions. A third work term is an option.
Students are required to register in ADMN 589 Co-op Seminar: Introduction to Professional Practice, in their first term in the program. Students are also referred to General Regulations: Graduate Co-op.
