Business and Economics Co-op

We are now accepting applications to co-op for admission from students who will be enrolled full-time in their second year of the BBA or Honours Economics program in fall 2015. After reading the information below, you may follow this link to follow the steps in applying.

(If you are in Arts or Science, please follow this link.)

The application deadline is Monday of the second week of classes in a student’s second year. 

  • Applicants who meet the grade requirements for 2014 will be invited to schedule and attend an admission interview. Follow this link for information about the minimum GPA.
  • When making admission decisions, co-op co-ordinators consider applicants’ first-year marks, recent work experience, recent volunteer and extracurricular activities, and performance in an interview.  See the introductory statement for more information about evaluation criteria.
  • Enrolment is limited; there are always many more applicants interviewed than there are spaces for co-op students. (For example, we received applications from 700 Business and Economics students in 2014 and offered admission to 380 students.)
  • The only entry point for co-op is at the beginning of second year. Students who are removed from their academic program are not eligible to continue in co-op, even if they are later reinstated into that program.
