Community Economic Development Certificate - Online

Delve into the emerging field of economic development with this one-of-a-kind online certificate.

You will develop practical business skills as you learn how small business and municipal governments can work together to advance local economies. No matter your professional or educational background, you will learn to apply your knowledge quickly and holistically to support urban or rural communities.

Graduates of this Program will be equipped to enter a career in the field of economic development and small business support.  Graduates who are already employed in this field will be well positioned for career advancement and diversification of employment opportunities.

Practitioners enter the field from a variety of backgrounds and enrolling in this program will enable them to contribute more quickly and holistically than if they just learned `on the-job'. This program could be taken by individuals who have not previously attended post-secondary, or it could enhance the portfolio of someone who is making a career change and/or has studied in a different or a related area and thus supports lifelong learning.

There are no admission requirements. Students have up to five years to complete the certificate. Please contact the School of Business at bus.distance@sait.ca for program details.
