This program is intended to prepare a student for a career in Project Management. At the end of this program, students will be able to demonstrate a knowledge of project management operations, including human resource management, risk management, budgeting and accounting, marketing, and business computer applications.


The Project management Co-op (1000 hrs) is an integral component of the Project management Diploma program as it provides students with work experience in a Canadian business environment. The program begins with two semesters of studies, providing students with the skills necessary to succeed, in the following 2 semesters of Co-op.

After completing the first Co-op students return to their studies for an additional study semester. Then they will enter their next six-month Co-op term. The final semester of study will follow leading them to graduation with the necessary tools and experience needed for their future careers.

This combination of a Canadian Diploma and Co-op is not only a competitive advantage but also allows students the opportunity to understand and experience the cultural and business nuances that can only be gained from a prolonged hands-on experience.
