Reputation matters

The U of A’s Faculty of Extension is widely regarded among business and government leaders for its ability to provide professional education that responds to the evolving industry needs.

The instruc­tors pro­vid­ed us stu­dents with insid­er infor­ma­tion about the con­struc­tion indus­try that you will nev­er receive from a textbook.

A big plus is the inter­ac­tion you get through­out the cours­es. You hear dif­fer­ent sto­ries, lis­ten to dif­fer­ent opin­ions… It real­ly helps you to gain some perspective.

I enjoyed being able to net­work and talk to peo­ple who work in a sim­i­lar field to mine.

Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment and Admin­is­tra­tion Certificate student

Such a great course! What I enjoyed the most was the mas­tery of both sub­ject con­tent, knowl­edge deliv­ery, and moti­va­tion­al leadership.
