CO-OP EDUCATION PROGRAM -EXPERIENCE THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
RIT Croatia provides top quality education. However, the demands of the modern business world are greater than ever before. You must be prepared for real business challenges and opportunities once you graduate. Co-operative education and internship placements prepare you for a successful integration into the labor market and help you develop your career.
The Hallmark of an RIT Education
Our co-op program was created based on the success of RIT's co-operative education program, one of the oldest and largest co-op programs in the world. Through co-op students gain work and valuable hands-on experience in their respective majors.
Information Technology/Web and Mobile Computing and International Business students complete their co-ops during their sophomore and junior year, where they spend a minimum of 800 hours conducting their co-op. Hospitality and Tourism Management students complete a minimum of 1,200 hours of co-ops during their freshman, sophomore, and junior years.
Our Career Services Advisors help students in their preparation for entering the labor market. They help them to connect with potential employers, identify co-op and internships opportunities, and teach them job search techniques (writing resumes and motivational letters, preparing them for interviews).
Prepared for a Successful Career
Co-op programs are carried out at companies and in industries relevant to our students’ studies. In addition to gaining professional working experience and building a significant business network, co-op's help them develop indispensable career skills in management, business communication, time management, flexibility, teamwork, etc.
Get to Know the World
Some students do their co-op and internship placements abroad. This valuable experience gives them an insight into the standards of international business, the diverse cultural and business challenges of a global market, and provide them with a global perspective of the business world.
Alumni in Demand
RIT Croatia has a wide and diverse network of business contacts that can help our students in their job search by identifying co-op and internship opportunities, as well as permanent job postings upon graduation. Employers say our students are exceptionally prepared for business challenges thanks to both the teaching style of RIT Croatia and the extensive experience our students gain during their co-ops. Our students work in world-renowned companies and institutions in Croatia and abroad.
CAREER EDUCATION DAY
Once a year, RIT Croatia organizes a business event, Career Education Day, which gathers representatives of some of the most renowned companies from Croatia and the region. The aim of the event is to help students establish contacts with potential employers. This is an excellent opportunity to meet company representatives, have an interview and find co-op placement, a seasonal or even a permanent job.
