International Centre for Co-operative Management

Education and research that fits the Co-operative Business Model

We are leaders in rigorous and dynamic research and education focused on co-operative management. We cultivate a deep understanding of co-operatives, credit unions and mutuals within a globalized education curriculum (with on-line and in-person options) and research program. If you're looking for a different type of targeted and advanced education and research that recognizes the unique co-operative approach to business, our programs may be for you.
