Co-operative education placements for Business Students

Elab Online is our online portal to advertise co-operative education placements for AUT 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.

Please register as an employer on CareerHub to advertise your co-op placement. This free service offers the opportunity to advertise just to our co-operative business students. For more information please contact Kate Coleman
