Kogod in Practice

What is Kogod in Practice?

At Kogod, we believe that you learn best by doing. Kogod in Practice encompasses a variety of experiential learning opportunities, including pro bono projects and Kogod Co-ops that bring résumé-worthy hands-on experiences to all Kogod students and to students across all AU schools.

Pro Bono Projects

Students serve as consultants on a 3 month project with a client, doing meaningful work and providing real deliverables, per the client's statement of work.





The Kogod Cooperative Education Program (Kogod Co-Op) provides practical, meaningful, long-term (4-12 months) paid internship experiences that can lead to a full-time job.
