The Philadelphia advantage
Some experience required
Our business school is tightly woven into the fabric of Philadelphia, home to more than a dozen Fortune 500 companies, major sports teams, global corporate headquarters and non-profit organizations. Connections to these business and cultural centers provide unlimited learning experiences for our students outside the classroom.
We believe the real world is a great teacher. Our relationships with major local and national corporations and organizations allow students to get valuable hands-on experience in their chosen field before graduation.
Cooperative Education Program
Get a full year of full-time work experience while you’re in school—and still graduate in four years. The Cooperative Education Program at Saint Joseph’s University adds valuable work experience to a student's collegiate résumé. Through hands-on experience, Hawks from all majors find ways to apply their studies in a professional setting before they graduate. The co-op program at SJU unites the classroom and the workplace by giving students two full-time, paid work opportunities, creating one full year of job experience while they are still in college. By participating in co-op, students are exposed to job opportunities that are educationally enriching and professionally meaningful.
Internships are typically one-time work or service experiences related to your major or career goal. The internship plan generally involves working in professional settings under the supervision and monitoring of practicing professionals. By participating in an internship you can apply what you are learning in the classroom, develop new skills, build your résumé, network, and reality-test a career.
These hands-on courses offered by the Faith-Justice Institute allow you to make a difference in the community while you earn credits—like teaching middle schoolers about financial health—many of which you can even apply toward your major.
