Host students with UM credentials and experience

Extended Education Industry Placement students are international students and working professionals studying Applied Business Analysis, Applied Business Management or Applied Human Resource Management with UM Extended Education. They complete their UM credentials in the first 10 months of their intensive program package, and their Industry Placement in the last two months.

Many bring a wealth of international experience from previous careers including accounting and finance, architecture and engineering, education and health care and human resources and administration.

Provide a professional opportunity

As an Industry Placement host, you provide a professional or paraprofessional role in your business or organization for our students. You also provide a place for tomorrow’s business and human resources professionals to learn and grow, enhancing their workplace skills and conduct with hands-on experience and networking.

An Industry Placement benefits both you and our students. You provide our students with regular supervision, guidance and feedback, and they support your business.

How to become a host

We work with local organizations, large and small. Our Industry Placement Coordinator will work with you to initiate and coordinate placements, providing support throughout.

Let’s discuss the possibilities. If your business or organization would like to provide an opportunity for our students, please contact us.

    "Our company has been hosting University of Manitoba international students for the past three years. Each year, students have helped us create a marketing plan for our franchisee and they've always done an exceptional job. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have the opportunity to mentor them. It’s inspiring to know we have helped them to find a career in their field. Our relationship with the students and the coordinator is very rewarding. The university helps make the process seamless.”

Student insights

  • Rohit Bembi

    “I was fortunate to be placed in Fairfield Residence Inn. It was my first experience in a Canadian workplace, and I learned a lot. It helped me to get acquainted with the expectations of Canadian employers which can be quite different from those in my home country. I would advise every student to work hard and participate in the Industry Placement. It boosts your resume and assists you in understanding the expectations and modus operandi of the Canadian workplace.”
