Business School celebrates student employability initiative
As part of our transformative approach to education, the Business Schools offers a work-integrated learning initiative – cooperative (Co-op) education. The Co-op programs allow high-achieving students the opportunity to enhance their practical skills as they alternate study with industry placements.
The 2019 cohort of Accounting and Actuarial Studies Co-op programs was welcomed at an event earlier this week, held at our city campus.
The event included a welcome by Prof Stephen Brammer, Executive Dean of the Macquarie Business School and featured a keynote address by Business School alumni Ryan Fisk, Managing Partner - NSW Assurance at EY. The event also included networking for students, staff and valued partners.
“The Co-op curriculum offers students an environment to explore how their discipline is applied in practice and strengthen their skillset by applying their learning in professional contexts,” said Professor Rahat Munir, Head of Department of Accounting and Corporate Governance.
“This year’s welcome event was an excellent opportunity for our talented students to hear the real-world experiences of one of our high-flying alumni, as well as network with some of our program partners and get a taste of the experiences they have to come.”
In 2020, Macquarie University will offer the following courses as part of our Co-operative Education program (Co-op):
- Bachelor of Actuarial Studies with Professional Practice (Honours) – Scholarship model
- Bachelor of Professional Practice and Bachelor of Professional Accounting - employment model
