Experiential Learning

Cooperative Education

What’s different about an RIT education? It’s the career experience you gain by completing cooperative education and internships with top companies in every single industry. You’ll earn more than a degree. You’ll gain real-world career experience that sets you apart. It’s exposure–early and often–to a variety of professional work environments, career paths, and industries. 

Co-ops take your knowledge and turn it into know-how. Business co-ops provide hands-on experience that enables you to apply your knowledge of business, management, finance, accounting, and related fields in professional settings. You'll make valuable connections between course work and real-world applications as you build a network of professional contacts.

Students in the marketing degree are required to complete at least one block of cooperative education.

Careers in Marketing

Careers in marketing are vast, dynamic, and multifaceted. And, with marketing needs in nearly every single industry, you can work in an area in which you have a particular passion, such as higher education, consumer goods, retail, entertainment, law, health care, and so much more. You'll find that there are opportunities in all industries to create value for consumers, to better understand your key audiences, and to create opportunities to build or strengthen brand awareness.  

Marketing encompasses a range of career opportunities that span from the creative (content creators, copywriters, storytellers) to the analytical (marketing research, SEO, SEM) to the logistics (sales, media buying/media placement), to the strategy (product/brand managers, chief marketing officers).
