Cooperative learning is a teaching approach in which students work cooperatively in small teams with individuals of different talents, abilities and background to complete a common goal. This study was set out to examine the views about cooperative learning in domain of group projects of graduating students of the Departments of Statistics and Economics of Arid Agriculture University Rawalpindi. A semi-standardized instrument measuring the attitudes on a three point Likert scale was adopted for data collection. Analysis of the data yielded that student was favorable to do work on group projects along with associated cooperative learning methods. The results of this study suggest that students could be developing different attitudes toward teamwork from their educational experiences. The challenge for University educators is to develop skills to facilitate positive teamwork experience among their students who will need to interact with each others in transnational teams in the workplace of the future.
