Brock is the third-largest Co-op school in Ontario, the fifth-largest in Canada. Brock’s Accounting co-op is the second largest program of its kind in Canada and the second program to be fully accredited by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Ontario (ICAO). We offer one of the most diverse programs in terms of selection and variety. Through your Co-op placement you'll explore different career possibilities, discover what interests you, develop key industry contacts and find the type of career that's right for you.
Co-op will put you a step ahead of everyone, and give you a competitive advantage in this challenging economic time.
The Bachelor of Accounting (BAcc) and the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) both offer Co-op options. Apply to Brock's Co-op program directly from secondary school, and you'll gain up to 20 months of work experience by the time you complete your undergraduate degree.
In the BAcc, working with the same accounting firm, you will acquire 16 to 20 of the 30 months practical work experience required to become a Chartered Accountant (CA).
In the BBA, you may work for different employers in each of your Co-op work terms, allowing you to explore various professional career opportunities.
Your Co-op experience will include a series of evening workshops custom designed to prepare you for the job search. You’ll be exposed to different industries, careers and opportunities and given one-on-one career counseling during your Co-op job search.
