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.
