most schools have figured this out, and the good / respected programs now *require* co-ops and/or internships in order to graduate. they are chasing the high job-placement metrics, and they know that these programs help for the reasons NCSUboater mentions. my son is majoring in international business and must complete both a semester abroad and an internship abroad to meet graduation requirements at SDSU...their program is consistently rated top 20 in the country.
