Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the program?
The program encompasses just over 12 months beginning in late October and concluding in early November of the following year. Actual contact time is divided into 3 modules for a total of 11 days of instruction and conversation on campus: 3 days in October; 5 days the following May; 3 days in early November.
What is the cost?
Tuition fees are currently set at $7400 (Cdn) if paid in one installment. Payment may also be made in two installments of $3800 each.
Fees include all course materials, meals and refreshment breaks (breakfast and lunch) on campus. Travel and accommodation (at nearby hotels of participants’ own choosing) are not included.
How do I qualify?
Qualified applicants typically have at least one post secondary diploma or degree and some experience (corporate or not for profit) in at least one of the areas that fall under the CSR/Sustainability umbrella.
An interview with each qualified applicant is included as part of the admission process to ensure a good learning fit for everyone.
Why are the classes so small? (limit: 25 participants per cohort)
The program is designed to enable in depth discussion among participants and with the team of instructors – including many guest speakers who are themselves graduates of the program.
Are there any graduates of the program who might be willing to talk to me about their experience?
When requested, the program manager has arranged email introductions between applicants and graduates. Many of our graduates have generously offered their insights about CSR in general and this program in particular to those who are relatively new to the field.
Are any Bursaries or Scholarships Available?
The University does have two $1,000 bursaries that are offered annually. You should apply to the bursary at the time of application to the program. Decisions on bursaries are made at the June 30th intake. You can download the Bursary Application here. If you are not selected for a bursary but still want to participate in the program, we can provide you with a 4 payment plan of $ 1,950 over 2 years to make your tuition payment more managable.
