Cooperative Education and Commercial Shipping Programs are a signature part of MMA's Learn-Do-Learn philosophy.  During these hands on experiences, cadets begin to understand what life after MMA may be like.  

Our cadets continue a long-standing tradition of excellence as they continue to learn and grow in the unique environment of MMA.  These expereinces take place all over the country and around the world.  The experiences that they have on co-op and commercial shipping programs help each cadet know that the major they selected on campus was the right one for them and to see parts of the industry that they would like to pursue after graduation.
