Waterloo co-op students become entrepreneurs
I hired 20 co-op students from the University of Waterloo to work on my test team here in New Zealand over several years. These students were key to successful product releases.
Some of these students, graduating with 2 years work experience already, instead of working for someone else, set up their own companies.
Perhaps that is why Waterloo has been ranked, out of all Canadian universities
