The Management Co-operative Programs are enriched programs that combine academic studies with paid work experience in public and private enterprises. Depending on their needs and abilities students work in areas such as accounting, public administration, auditing, communications, economic development, finance, human resources/personnel, information systems, marketing, policy and strategic planning. For information about the benefits of Co-op, the work term preparation course and fees, please visit the Management Co-op website.

Full Year/Trimester Programming
The Management Co-op Program operates on a trimester schedule, featuring three terms (fall, winter and summer) in each Calendar year. Students work or study in all three terms for four years or until graduation requirements are met. With the exception of the Double Degree program which requires 9 four-month terms of study, each Management Program requires eight four-month terms of study and three work terms. Students normally begin with three to five study semesters (Fall. Winter, and Summer), then alternate study and work terms. Students always conclude their degree with a study term.

Program Requirements
Co-op students follow the course requirements of one of the Specialist programs offered by the Department of Management. In addition, all Co-op students must take MGTA36H3 prior to their first work term. In the first two years of study, most students will follow a common core curriculum of studies (please refer to the detailed requirements in the Management programs). Students are advised to consult regularly with the Academic Director if they have questions regarding course selection and scheduling. It is, however, the students' individual responsibility to ensure they have completed the correct courses to make them eligible for each work term and they have correctly completed program and degree requirements for graduation.

Work Terms
To compete for a work term a student must maintain a 2.5 CGPA, and must have completed:
1. For the first work term:
a) 7.0 credits, including: [MGTA05H3 or [MGTA01H3 and MGTA02H3]], MGEA02H3, MGEA06H3, MGAB01H3, MGAB02H3, MGMA01H3, MGTA36H3, MATA32H3, and MATA33H3. [MATA32H3 and MATA33H3] are strongly recommended, however [MATA29H3/A30/ A31H3 and MATA35H3/A36H3/A37H3] may also be used to satisfy the calculus requirement.

MIB students will take Advancing Your Career Exploration MIB Part l & ll COPB13H3 and COPB14H3. However, COPB10Y3/(COPD07Y3) is available to all co-op students during the summer.
2. For the second work term: 9.0 credits.

Status in Co-op Programs:
Status in a Management Co-op program will be determined at the end of each session (Fall, Winter, and Summer) for students who have attempted at least 4.0 credits since beginning their studies at UTSC, or in other Arts and Sciences Divisions at the University. Students with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.5 or higher are considered to be in good standing.

  • Students whose CGPA falls below 2.5 will be placed on probation.
  • Students may clear probation by achieving a CGPA of 2.5 or better in the next study session. Where the CGPA is below 2.5, but the sessional grade point average (SGPA) is at least 2.5, students may be granted a second probationary semester.
  • Students must clear their probation within a maximum of two study sessions in order to remain in a Co-op program.
  • Students on probation in the Co-op program may not apply for a work-term until they have successfully cleared their probation. However, if a student's CGPA falls below 2.5 after having secured a job placement through the recruitment process, the student will be permitted to complete the work-term but must clear probation before being permitted to participate in the next recruitment process.
  • Students whose CGPA falls below 2.3 will be removed from the Co-op program; students whose CGPA falls below 2.0 will be removed from all BBA programs. A student may request reinstatement to the non-Co-op Specialist program only, if they complete at least 2.0 credits (none of which can be designated as CR/NCR) in the following session, and raise their CGPA to at least 2.0. This opportunity will be provided only once.

Status in Double Degree Co-op Programs:
Status in the Double Degree: BBA, Specialist (Co-operative) program in Management and Finance/HBSC, Specialist (Co-operative) Program in Statistics, Quantitative Finance Stream will be determined at the end of each session (Fall, Winter, and Summer) for students who have attempted at least 4.0 credits since beginning their studies at UTSC, or in other Arts and Sciences Divisions at the University. Students with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.5 or higher are considered to be in good standing.

  • To remain in the Double Degree (Co-op) program students must maintain a CGPA of 2.5 or higher after having attempted at least 4.0 credits.
  • Students whose CGPA falls below 2.5 will be placed on probation.
  • Students may clear probation by successfully completing at least 2.0 credits (none of which can be designated as CR/NCR) and achieving a CGPA of 2.5 or better in the next study session. 
  • Students who cannot clear probation in two consecutive sessions, or whose CGPA falls below 2.3, will be removed from the Double Degree (Co-op) program; these students can pursue the Double Degree (non-Co-op) program, or one of the constituent non-Co-op Specialist programs (i.e., the BBA Specialist program in Management and Finance, or the BSc Specialist program in Statistics, Quantitative Finance stream).
