Experiential Education Opportunities

From co-op to real-time challenges, experiential education is an invaluable part of your undergraduate experience.

At the Faculty of Management, you’ll have an opportunity to shape your degree and be further challenged to apply knowledge, build networks, develop skills, and enhance learning through designed and supported experiential education experiences.

Opportunities such as our annual Live Case Challenge, Entrepreneur Bootcamp, and the Capstone projects will give you a chance to research, analyze and develop recommendations to address a particular challenge provided by a community partner. In the process, you’ll gain hands-on experience that not only builds your confidence but also boosts your resume and prospects for after graduation.

Looking to gain work experience and advance transferable skills? Consider building your resume through the Co-op Education Program and find connections that will assist you in identifying and further advancing your personal and professional goals.
