Work Experience Credit

Cooperative education is a unique component of our Management program. You will earn a total of 12 semester hours toward your associate degree from your on-the-job work experience. Here's how the coop component works.

Each semester you will take one cooperative education class, along with one of our core specialized management courses. You will earn three credit hours per cooperative class. Each cooperative education class will comprise the following activities:

  • Participation in one stimulating and informative management seminar per month, along with other management students and your professor.
  • Completion of various seminar-related activities assigned by the professor.
  • Completion of a few work-related objectives that have been approved by your professor and your manager.
