Summer opportunities / Internships
Career Services assists BCom students plan their career goals by helping them discover and prepare for opportunities that align with the individual career paths that the students would like to explore.
Internships give students practical experience needed to make important career choices and help students:
The PhD in Management Program offers only Fall (September) admission of the same calendar year in which admission is sought. The deadline of January 15 is for all applicants (Canadian and international). Very important: Do not apply to start the program in winter or summer - applications for winter or summer will be cancelled and the application fee will NOT be refunded.
As part of the MBA program, students are required to complete an experiential component, which can be a practicum, international exchange or internship.
An internship provides students with hands-on practice and valuable industry experience. Students receive guidance from the Career Services team, selecting the field and specific organization that best suits their interests, skills, and career goals. Following a selection process, students begin an internship which will put their classroom learning to use.
