COOPERATIVE EDUCATION Program
Educating Through Real-Life Experience
Students stand out of the crowd through the Stevens Co-op Program with hands-on experience at leading companies in banking, financial services, risk and insurance. Before even completing an undergraduate degree, co-op students have worked alongside the best and brightest in the industry, with two years of paid professional experience on their resumes.
Getting the Job
The 15 most lucrative college majors have one very conspicuous common denominator: Math.
Jobs which pay such high salaries are competitive and highly desirable, and they all require math skills. The Princeton Review recently ranked Stevens 13th in the nation for "Best Career Services" and CBS MoneyWatch placed the university in the top 10 schools in the nation for best return on investment (ROI). These achievements are largely due to the exceptional co-op program in which 40 percent of the student body participates.
With the combination of classroom learning and real-world experience, students who participate in the Co-op Program make compelling candidates for prospective employers. Many co-op students are offered full-time positions by their co-op employers post-graduation, with higher-than-average starting salaries. Students are able to explore the wide range of opportunities available to a math major. The program offers a five-year plan that is fully compatible with the Mathematics curriculum. Over 30 percent of students in the program earn both a Master's degree and a Bachelor's degree while participating in the program.
Prominent companies that participate in the Co-op Program include UBS, Marsh and McLennan Companies and BlackRock.
