Education that fits the Co-operative Business Model

Co-operative Management Education offers rigorous and dynamic programs for co-operative management professionals. 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 and advanced business education that recognizes the unique social value co-operative models bring to business, the Co-operative Management Education programs may be for you.

CME hosted the International Co-operative Governance Symposium in September 2013. Research and work collected from the symposium, along with contributions from individuals in the international co-operative community, led to the development of a think piece. This report was then presented at the ICA Research Conference in November 2015. To access the report, please click here
