Leading co-op business school
Since University of Cincinnati educator Herman Schneider's invention of co-op 1906, UC has grown to be the No. 1 for co-op among public universities, standing at No. 4 in the U.S. News & World Report’s 2023 rankings, continuing its historical placement of Top 5 co-op programs in the country.
Co-op empowers students to explore career options, while building their professional skills, resumes and networks through multiple paid, professional work experiences related to the student’s area of study. Lindner is proud to further this powerful tradition, with more than 8,000 co-ops completed since 2017.
2022-23 by the numbers:
- 653 co-ops completed
- $7.4 million in student earnings
- 605 co-op employers
- 183 students retained at same company for future co-op
In 10 weeks, I was able to gain an in-depth understanding of the ever-changing paid media realm through strategic analyses and interactions with industry-leading brands such as TikTok, Snapchat and Twitter. This experience has set the bar as I move forward in my personal and professional journey.
