Experiential learning through internship and co-op programs can truly be a win-win for the student and the organization. Employers benefit from our students’ gold standard work ethic and the fresh, bright ideas they bring from their particular academic discipline. Hiring interns can also provide a talent pipeline for the organization and a workplace sampling opportunity for students.
Internship and co-op programs offer students a high-impact learning opportunity to engage in discovery and receive training and mentoring. Interns take part in mutually beneficial partnerships with communities and organizations to solve complex issues, develop products and services, and to prepare for successful careers in a global society.
