Management Economics in Industry and Finance (Co-op)

Department of Consumer Studies, College of Social and Applied Human Sciences.

A principal aim of the Co-op program in Management Economics in Industry and Finance is to facilitate the transition of students from academic studies to a professional career by enhancing the integration of theory and practice.

The Co-op program consists of two eight month work terms. The first work term begins after the second year and extends from January to August. The Co-op program is normally completed over a 5 year period.

To be eligible to continue in the Co-op major, students must maintain a satisfactory average, must complete all course requirements as scheduled and must obtain a minimum evaluation of "satisfactory" on all required work term reports. Consult the Co-op advisor or Department for additional program information.
