Co-op or credit union members, those interested in co-operatives, or those who are not based in Ontario will also find value in many of the modules. Developed by the Ontario Co-operative Association with the support of the co-operative industry leaders, and offered by the Schulich School of Business, the Program is affordable, practical and accessible.

Goals of the CMC Program
• To provide pertinent knowledge and information about the co-operative sector in areas such as governance, membership development, legislation, financing and co-op development.
• To develop critical thinking, management and leadership skills.
• To assist participants in the development of their careers.
• To develop alliances and partnerships with sector colleagues.
The Co-operative Management Program is a nine-month course of study, beginning Fall 2009 and completed by spring 2010. The program consists of five core e-learning modules, your choice of two sector-specific e-learning sessions, and three two-day intensive learning sessions in which participants engage critically with top professionals and peers in a learning network focused on contemporary co-operative management issues.
Each e-learning module takes about five hours in total to complete, approximately one hour of which will be spent online. There are two assignments.
