Saunders College of Business undergraduate and graduate programs are fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) International, the premier accrediting organization for business schools. Less than 5 percent of the institutions granting business degrees have received this accreditation.
Cooperative education, or co-op for short, is full-time, paid work experience in your field of study. And it sets RIT graduates apart from their competitors. It’s exposure–early and often–to a variety of professional work environments, career paths, and industries. RIT co-op is designed for your success.
Students in the international business degree are required to complete at least one block of cooperative education, which may have an international component. Many students study abroad to solidify their understanding of a foreign language and gain experience living in another culture. They follow their study abroad experience with a co-op in a multinational corporation in the United States, or in an international company overseas, to acquire comprehensive international business experience.
