Career preparation is at the center of a UC education

Let’s face it. College is one of the most important investments you’ll ever make. And a Cincinnati education offers one of the most valuable ROI’s in higher ed. How? By putting education into action through an unparalleled commitment to experience-based learning and career preparation.

Home to nearly 50,000 students, the University of Cincinnati (UC) has been named among the top-tier “Best National Universities” by U.S. News & World Report. UC offers students a balance of educational excellence and real-world experience.

The University of Cincinnati invented cooperative education (co-op) over 100 years ago, and today ranks among the best universities in the nation for co-op and internships. On co-op, students rotate semesters in the classroom and working paid, full-time positions in their field of study. And 100% of UC students have access to experience-based learning opportunities. That means Cincinnati’s classroom extends to nearly every corner of the globe, from Fortune 500 companies and innovative startups to trailblazing experiences in places like China, Tanzania, and South America. UC co-op students earn a collective $58 million annually working for thousands of employers including Microsoft, Disney, Apple, NASA, Procter & Gamble, and many more.
