Co-opUniversity of CincinnatiProfessional PracticeCo-op



Co-op was invented at the University of Cincinnati in 1906. Now, over 100 years and 43 countries later, generations of students worldwide have followed our lead!

Today, UC's co-op program is listed among the nation's best in "US News & World Report" rankings.

This site has been designed to meet the needs of the important constituents of the co-op triad—the student, the employer and the university.

International Co-op

The International Co-op Program (ICP) provides exciting opportunities for UC students to learn a second language and gain international experience through an overseas co-op assignment. The University of Cincinnati is one of the few universities in the United States which offers such a program. The International Co-op Program was established in 1990. Since then, many companies and individuals have helped build a solid foundation to create opportunities for students to explore the global market.

International Co-op Programs are currently offered for German, Japanese and Spanish.
