The Asper Students’ Co-operative Association (ASCA) is a student lead group that works collectively with the Co-op office to help guide students throughout their Co-op experiences over the course of their Undergraduate degree. The goals of the group are to: •Promote the Co-operative Education Program to students within the Asper School of Business and prospective students
•Enhance the ability of students to gain knowledge in their field of study
•Develop connections between students and the business community
ASCA is committed to building a networking community with current students, business professionals, and alumni. This community ensures students have a supportive network of peers and business professionals to enhance their ability to develop into young professionals. Students involved in ASCA and the Co-op program will learn to develop confidence in the workplace, among other key professional attributes.
ASCA provides services to all Co-op students upon acceptance into the program. Some programs ASCA offers include mentorship with senior students, business card orders, and a round table event. The round table event allows new co-op students to network with senior students in their prospective field of study.
