RRC work experience "Project" involves student consulting

April 9, 2012

Red River College's School of Business and Applied Arts has created a new model of learn-work experience that goes beyond traditional forms of co-op education and internships. Under "The Project," the school mobilizes teams of 3 or 4 students from the business information technology program to work on real-life business problems identified by local firms and non-profit organizations. As part of the course, the school offers "Project" students dedicated on-campus space to meet with clients and full access to software and other technology needed to solve the problem. "Project" students receive a tuition fee discount if they get passing marks. Globe and Mail
