PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Global Co-op programs are unparalleled career opportunities with global companies and organizations, where students work on the front line in diverse cultures addressing the challenges of today’s global society. These types of opportunities are designed to enhance a student's career portfolio and prepare you to effectively lead and conduct business across communities around the globe.

Your co-op coordinator is your primary point-of-contact if you’re interested in doing a global co-op. As each college has slightly different processes, your co-op coordinator will guide you through all relevant next steps and connect you with the appropriate resources and on-campus offices to best support you.
