Education that fits the Co-operative Business Model

Imagine a unique Master’s-level business program steeped in the values of co-operation—one that lets you share knowledge with top faculty and fellow mature learners from around the world.

Co-operative Management Education (CME) offers a rigorous and dynamic program for co-operative management professionals. Choose the 3-year Master of Management, Co-operatives and Credit Unions, the Graduate Diploma in Co-operative Management (20 months) or the Bilingual Certificate in Co-operative Management (10 months).

The programs cultivate a deep understanding of co-operatives, credit unions and mutuals, within a globalized, online curriculum. If you’re looking for a different type of targeted, advanced business education—one that recognizes the unique social value co-operative models bring to business—the Co-operative Management Education program may be for you.

Upon completion, you’ll be well-positioned for career advancement. You’ll graduate with internationally-recognized credentials from the Sobey School of Business, gain an extensive network of international contacts, and immediately apply what you’ve learned back at your home co-op or credit union.
