Management is the art of making people more effective employees. As a manager, you need to be a forward thinker who can create a plan, organize the resources to make it work, direct the people who will make it happen, and monitor and control its effects.The primary function of management is the satisfaction of a range of stakeholders. This typically involves making a profit for the shareholders, creating valued products at a reasonable cost for customers, and providing rewarding employment opportunities for employees.
Co-operative education provides you the opportunity to take what you are learning in the classroom and apply it in a real-life work situation. The Edwards Co-operative Education Program provides students the opportunity to compete for eight months of relevant work experience for the following January of their acceptance into the co-op program. Students accepted participate in professional development workshops to prepare them for the job search process. Students who successfully complete the co-op experience will extend their degree by at least one term.
Second year Edwards students from all majors are welcome to apply each January. The number of participants and companies continues to grow each year with the ultimate goal of being able to accommodate up to 150 students annually.
