A long-standing fixture in the Philadelphia business community, La Salle has an extensive corporate network, which opens doors for students to gain access to prime co-op and internship opportunities in the fifth-largest metropolitan area in the United States. Some of the world’s most well-known brands have found a corporate home in the City of Brotherly Love, and 12 Fortune 500 and 32 Fortune 1000 companies are headquartered in the region.
No fewer than 50 Philadelphia-area companies participate regularly in our credit-bearing co-op and paid internship programs, enabling students to earn a salary while fulfilling some of their academic requirements. Through La Salle’s innovative Business Scholars Co-op Program, motivated students can complete two full-time work experiences while still graduating in four years.
