Here is what some of our graduates had to say:

"In this economy, people are hungry for alternatives. The co-operative business model offers a different approach to business – one based in community, democracy and sustainability. CME gives co-op managers the tools they need to innovate and succeed. I can’t speak highly enough of this program."

Erbin Crowell, CME Graduate
Neighboring Food Co-op Association, USA

"I didn’t want a standard MBA program, and most co-op courses seemed to be an MBA with a co-op module attached. The CME program increased my overall effectiveness and the influence of the Scottish Agricultural Organization Society, UK (SAOS) within the Scottish farm and rural co-operative sector, which has grown turnover by 25% in the last year alone."

Bob Yuill, CME Graduate
Scottish Agricultural Organization Society, UK

"The Co-operative Management Education Program brought a whole new dynamic to my work. It helped me to better understand how the co-op philosophy, mission, and business model all work together to provide us with a true competitive advantage. My career has moved forward as well!"

Tony White, CME Graduate
