Your Field Education Options

Work Experience (Co-op and Internship)

The Advanced Diploma in Business Administration-International Business (with work experience) option requires the successful completion of two semesters of work experience to graduate. This work experience is either co-op (paid) or internship (unpaid). Either one will give you the practical experience employers value.

George Brown works with employers and industry partners to identify potential work experience opportunities. Students are also strongly encouraged to pursue self-directed industry work experience opportunities they believe will provide the learning experiences they value and meet the learning outcomes of the program. This valuable work experience can, in turn, be added to your resumé.

In addition to more formal on-the-job work experience, George Brown College endeavors to provide field education opportunities with real-world challenges and clients.
