This morning, Catherine Schlett took her seat in a classroom at Dublin City University in Ireland.
She was thousands of miles away from her fellow Goodman School of Business students at Brock University, but one day closer to graduating with business degrees from both institutions and work experience from two countries at the end of her undergraduate studies.
It’s one of the many benefits of being accepted to Goodman’s prestigious co-op international dual degree program, which helps students get where they want to go in their careers with four years of co-op education split between Goodman and one of four renowned European business schools located in economically robust and diverse regions.
The highly competitive undergraduate program is the only one of its kind offered by a Canadian university. Every year, hundreds of the country’s brightest and most ambitious students apply for one of 50 spots in the program. They land coveted jobs when they graduate and get accepted to top post- graduate programs.
As Goodman’s international dual degree celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2019, the program continues to grow with new partnerships established with universities accredited by the internationally recognized Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).
The world of opportunities for students like Schlett continues to expand, too.
“The main reason I chose to do the dual degree is obviously the job market is so competitive and so many students graduate from business programs with just BBAs.
I knew this would make me stand out from the other applicants,” Schlett said. “And that’s what really stood out for me.”
