Student Testimonials:

 “Throughout my co-op within the HR technology department of Northwell Health, I was treated as if I were a full-time employee and member of the team. I had the opportunity to be "in the weeds" of a massive, multimillion dollar HR transformation project in partnership with Deloitte and Oracle. I took ownership of various projects and tasks and presented my work to senior HR leadership at all levels of the organization. I got to learn so much about time management, project management, data analytics, and what it takes to be an effective member of a project team. It was overall a great experience that contributed greatly to my professional development”  – Alexandra Bowler, MBA Health Services Management

 “I spent my spring co-op internship at Fox News as a programming analytics intern in the Fox News programming analytics department. The majority of my duties entailed analyzing the ratings of various TV shows on the Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network lineup utilizing Microsoft Excel. Overall my co-op experience is a positive one, albeit a little bittersweet since it was shifted to a remote position following the stay-at-home lockdown orders. I was given great insight on how a cable television news network runs and how executives look at and analyze ratings in meetings. I feel it greatly prepared me for any positions in the future as I was able to speak to and listen in on several meetings and conversations. I would highly recommend this co-op to any future students as it was very informative and productive toward my career advancement. “ – Joey Leung, MBA Business Analytics
