Hire a Lindner Student as a Co-Op or Intern

Since University of Cincinnati educator Herman Schneider's invention of co-op 1906, UC has connected students to experiential learning opportunities that fuse together theory and practice.

Students on co-op at 84.51

UC houses the world’s third-largest co-op program that ranks in the top 5 in the nation by U.S. News and World Report. Each year, students earn a collective $75 million annually working for about 1,600 employers.

Co-op allows UC students to alternate academic semesters with professional, paid work directly tied to their majors with local, national and international employers, from multinational firms to non-profits and start-ups too. Alternatively, co-op enables companies to source affordable, emerging talent from UC's rich talent pipeline.

In March 2020, the world was thrown into a global pandemic that had everyone scrambling to figure out how to work. For Lindner's Career Services team, that meant learning how to connect students with employers in new ways, achieving the following highlights:

  • The highest undergraduate placement rate ever of 88% placement within three months of graduating.
  • The highest undergraduate starting salary ever of $54,456. Lindner students with four or more co-op rotations earning a starting salary upwards of $59,000.
  • 100% placement for Insurance & Risk Management, MS Applied Economics and MS Tax students.
  • 23% increase in starting salary for students who majored in Business Analytics—$74,000.
