Co-op experience is a requirement for the Management and Marketing degree program. Additional semesters of co-op are available as a degree elective.
Your co-op can either be paid or unpaid. If you are currently employed, it may be possible to work with your employer to structure a plan to meet your co-op requirement. If you are not already employed, look to the Career Services Center for available co-ops, or contact the co-op coordinator for additional resources.
Along with the 15 hours of work per week, a one-hour meeting with your co-op coordinator will fulfill the co-op requirements. The co-op coordinator and your employer will evaluate your work. These evaluations, along with homework grades, will determine your final grade.
Ultimately, the key is to work with Lake Michigan College's co-op coordinator to verify that the co-op experience you are choosing meets the requirements of giving you practical experience in the management and marketing field.
