Work and Study
At Mondragon Unibertsitatea we offer our students the option of learning in a professional working environment, developing technical and transversal skills of professional action at the same time as they participate corporately in a cooperative experience.
The students can combine their studies with part-time work through ALECOP, in a local company (Fagor, Ikerlan, Ulma, Orona, Alecop...) as more than 3,500 students of Mondragon Unibertsitatea have done in the last 20 years.
This, besides providing the student with an important source of income to finance their studies, represents complementary training in occupational skills, that is, in what it means to be working.
ALECOP (Actividad Laboral de Estudiantes en COOPerativa) is the main producer of educational-technical resources in Spain. It was created in 1966 as an industrial cooperative company, which allows the student to combine work and study, and which currently has 50 monitor partners and around 500 student partners.
