Message from the Dean
Employers today are looking more and more to fill available business positions with business majors grounded in meaningful "real-world" experience. Hofstra University, through this cooperative (co-op) program, is initiating a long-term commitment to partner with the corporate community and its own Frank G. Zarb School of Business student body to address this issue.
Through this co-op program, Zarb provides an integrated educational and professional work experience for our full-time cohort MBA students. Participation offers students the opportunity for a paid position with a company in a field related to their degree program. It also provides an opportunity for business leaders to help grow the base of experienced business talent here on Long Island and abroad.
Our goal is to build a cooperative program that attracts top-ranked students as well as top-tier corporations looking to recruit our Zarb MBA graduates. In the years ahead, we plan to expand corporate partners both in quantity and geographically so that we can offer students positions locally as well as regionally and beyond. Our long-term goal is to enhance this program and build its recognition as a premier program that contributes to Hofstra University’s value proposition, while meeting the needs of our corporate partners.
