Drexel Cooperative Education (Co-op) is a renowned collegiate program and the essence of the Drexel Difference. Charles D. Close School students spend a minimum of six months (two terms) to eighteen months (six terms), working in positions that allow them to apply classroom skills to hands-on experience within their chosen professions. Co-op affords the opportunity to learn about a specific career path and to work with other professionals to acquire skills and experience that ultimately set Drexel graduates apart from graduates of traditional academic settings.
Students enrolled in the Charles D. Close School have a variety of options to complete their co-ops. Students can select from the following degree options:
- 5 year, 3 Co-op
- 4 year, 1 Co-op
- 4 year, no Co-op
- 3 year, no Co-op
For examples of co-op experiences held by Close School students, please visit the Co-op Fast Facts by College page. Students have worked in various industries ranging from marketing, consulting, design, sustainability, non-profits, start-ups and more.
In addition to the traditional co-op experience, students from any major can apply to the Entrepreneurship Co-op, where you can earn $15,000 to start your own business.
We recommend reaching out to our Assistant Director of Academic Services at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have specific questions.

The three-year degree in entrepreneurship and innovation offered by the Close School is rigorous and sustains all the standards of our four-year and five-year degree programs. It is a degree that is particularly appealing to the student who is determined, disciplined, and goal oriented – as we find that many entrepreneurship students are.
Students who select the three-year degree will complete eleven terms of classes, including a hands-on practicum experience. There are no co-ops for this degree option.
For further questions on the three-year degree program and to better understand the differences in our degree offerings, please contact Senior Academic Advisor, Rita Berson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
