Eligible students have completed a minimum of two years of undergraduate academic study and are available to start in January, May, or September. Haskayne Co-op students will readily contribute their analytical skills to all areas of business.

Participating in the Co-operative education program is a cost-effective solution for short-term projects and business cycle peaks. Co-op students complete a competitive application process in order to be admitted into the program.

Hiring Co-op is an opportunity for your organization to develop a long-term sustainable recruitment strategy by providing you with the ability to fill full-time roles with past students who are familiar with your business.

Co-op roles must:

  • Offer productive, business-related work to help students build on the skills learned in school

In order to ensure our students have the best learning experience possible, key goals and performance expectations should be discussed at the beginning of the work term. Throughout the Co-op placement, please provide your student with ongoing feedback, mentorship, and complete a final performance evaluation.

Students, as a part of their work term requirements, need to complete a set of learning objectives, a mid-term self assessment (reviewed at the on-site visit), and a final project.  Supervisors are encouraged to provide on-going feedback to the Co-op student.

In order to participate in the Co-operative education program as an employer, your Co-op position must be approved by the Haskayne Career Centre. Once approved, your position will be posted to the Haskayne School of Business Elevate Co-op job board at no cost.
