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 stands 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 — and No. 1 for co-op among public universities.

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. Each year, students earn a collective $75 million annually working for about 1,600 employers. Alternatively, co-op enables companies to source affordable, emerging talent from UC's rich talent pipeline.

Lindner students graduating during the 2021-22 academic set a new record for job placement:

  • 92% placement of undergraduate students within three months of graduation.
  • 96% placement of graduate students within three months of graduation.
  • Students who completed four or more co-ops saw an average starting salary increase of $9,699 compared to students with zero co-ops.
  • 1,300+ Lindner students participated in co-op, earning an average salary of $10,800 per semester.
