Partnerships that matter

By hosting a Workplace Tour for International Students, you will have the opportunity to promote your workplace and culture to a diverse group of students who will constitute the upcoming Canadian workforce. Joining the ranks of Concordia’s 50 plus partners that are actively engaged in community-based experiential learning programs, means that you will also be contributing to forward-thinking educational experiences.

Visibility opportunities

Industry visits will be promoted across the university’s digital communications channels, such as our NOW e-newsletters distributed to over 50,000 faculty, staff and students, institutional social media accounts, our International E-Bulletin sent to 8,000 international students directly as well as communications to our extensive alumni network.
