Provide an Industry Placement
The University of Manitoba Extended Education Industry Placement is an opportunity for your business or organization to help build the future by hosting Extended Education international students as they develop their careers. When you host a student, they provide valuable support to your business and help to position you as an employer with a vision for the future.
Student placements are 175 hours and unpaid, so there is no cost to you.
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.
