What to expect from the program

Think you have what it takes to be a leader?

You will.

In just 12 weeks. That’s what makes NorQuest College’s Managerial Excellence microcredential unique. Not only will you leave with a new understanding of leadership, but you’ll also have experience applying your knowledge in the community. Combining experiential learning and community-based projects, we offer you a mix of unconventional education and an environment full of diverse thinkers, connections to local business professionals, and opportunities to gain hands-on experience within Edmonton. It’s what makes NorQuest the ideal place for you to become a leader.

Upon completion of your 12-week learning experience, you will put your skills to the test in a Community Action Project. This project is a team-based activity exploring a real community issue. In addition, you will earn a microcredential certificate to boost your LinkedIn profile and help you stand out in the job market.
