Corporate Cohort Program

Our Corporate Cohorts allow organizations to have their employees take courses together. Typically enrolling about 25 students, Cohorts have small class sizes ensuring individualized attention.

Classmates are your fellow colleagues, which enhances teamwork and promotes heightened class discussions specific to your place of work. What is learned in the classroom is applicable the next day at work.

Classes are held one night a week, the same day and time of the week, from the start of the program through to graduation. Classes are typically from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., although there are some exceptions. We have five terms a year, allowing for year-round study.
