Coop Changes at the newly branded Automotive Business School of Canada
2012 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the newly branded Automotive Business School of Canada (ABSC) formerly the Canadian Automotive Institute (CAI). There are a few changes that we would like to bring to your attention.
The newest program addition to ABSC is the 2 Year Automotive Business diploma which replaced the 3 year Business Administration Automotive Marketing diploma (AUBU). Students that complete the AUBU program have various pathways available to them to complete a degree at Georgian or with some of our various partners.
Co-ops for the Automotive Business Program will typically take place in the summer and winter months and, as a rule, will no longer be available in the fall.
The 4 year degree program, Bachelor of Business Automotive Management, will continue to have 3 co-ops that take place in all 3 semesters. The degree students will be completing their 3rd and final co-op in the fall semester.
What does this mean for your business? You will have a smaller but more experienced pool of candidates for the fall co-op semester which runs from September until the end of December.
ABSC would like to extend an invitation to past employers, to post competitive and challenging positions for our senior students during the fall semester. Postings will commence as of June 4 2012. By employing a co-op student, your company may be eligible to receive a tax credit from the provincial government.
