For Preet Khimasia, a third-year finance and business analysis student, cooperation was a major reason for choosing UC. Born in India, Khimasia knew he wanted to study abroad, but it was important to have a recognized leader in his chosen field.

“UC had one of the best programs for what I wanted to do,” he says. “What really appealed to me was that I’m a very hands-on learner and a very experiential learner. I can’t just sit in a classroom and expect to study everything. I really have to go out and do to succeed.

Cooperative education began at UC in 1906 and its program has remained a leader in experiential learning ever since. The university ranks #4 in the nation for cooperation, with Cincinnati’s hands-on classroom spanning nearly every corner of the world, from Fortune 500 companies to pioneering experiences in places like China, Tanzania and South America.

UC students earn $75 million a year working for thousands of employers, including General Electric Aviation, Disney, Toyota, Kroger, Procter & Gamble, and many more. UC has nearly 2,000 global co-op program partners, with students participating in more than 7,500 co-op opportunities each year.

Forbes recently noted the university’s leadership position and longevity in cooperative education.
