We have two program formats for international students wishing to study and work in Canada...
These eight-month programs include two certificates: a 100-hour Leadership Certificate that focuses on building skills in the areas of coaching, communication, building relationships, personal effectiveness, and professional skills, and a 300-hour certificate in Professional Management or Human Resource Management.
These programs will take two terms to complete. Each term is four months. There are three admission periods per year: fall, winter, and spring/summer. Students will register individually in the courses that comprise the certificates. Students must maintain a minimum of 200 course hours per term in order to retain full-time status as a Continuing Education international student.
Students in these programs pay regular domestic tuition fees for the courses in the certificate programs in their specialization, in addition to the Continuing Education International Differential (CEID) for each term of study.
|CEID:||$3,900 ($1,950 per term)|
|Management Certificate:||$5,025 – $5,450|
|Leadership Certificate:||$4,350 – $6,400|
|TOTAL:||$13,375 – $15,850|
At the time of registration, your minimum payment will include the $200 application fee and a $675 deposit for each CEID, for a total of $1,550. Textbooks are not included in the fee.
These programs are designed to provide you with expertise in a chosen professional field and the leadership skills needed to competently lead a team, increase employee engagement, enhance performance and productivity, and contribute to the overall success of an organization.
Each specialization will provide the graduate with multiple credentials. These programs will take three to six terms to complete. Each term is four months. There are two admission periods per year: fall and winter. Students should expect approximately 215 course hours per term.
1+1 Program Options
Students can complete more than one program consecutively. For example, a student may choose to take the Business Analysis, Intelligence and Analytics program followed by the Digital Media and Marketing program. If you choose to take consecutive programs, we recommend that you apply for all programs at the same time. This allows you to apply for a study permit that covers the duration of both programs. Students completing consecutive one-year programs may be eligible for a three-year Post Graduate Work Permit.
At the time of registration, your minimum payment will include the $200 application fee and a $2,025 deposit ($675 x 3 terms) for the program of study, for a total of $2,225. Textbooks are not included in the fee.
