Promote Your Opportunities

AUT welcomes employer and industry participation. As a university, we are committed to providing industry and employment related opportunities that will help develop graduates with a reputation of hitting the ground running and meeting our vision of great graduates.

Co-operative education placements for Business Students

Co-operative Education is the capstone paper for our senior business students. Because students are earning academic credit for this paper there are specific requirements and restrictions on when and how they do their ‘co-op’. These include the dates, hours they work and the tasks/activities they are involved in.

Elab Online is our online portal where we advertise co-operative education placements for AUT Business students. To advertise for a co-operative business student please register on CareerHub as an employer to offer a placement. For more detailed information please contact Kate Coleman
