Suzelle Umeobieri / Business Analysis program helped Suzelle embark on a new career path

Just what I want­ed: it teach­es you new art skills and helps you get ready for a career as an artist. I found the con­tent and instruc­tors excellent.

Visu­al Arts

The broad scope of the infor­ma­tion pro­vid­ed helps you under­stand most aspects of local gov­ern­ment operations.

Nation­al Advanced Cer­tifi­cate in Local Author­i­ty Admin­is­tra­tion Lev­el I student

It’s great when you start putting the the­o­ry into prac­tice at work. The knowl­edge you gain allows for bet­ter bud­get rec­om­men­da­tions and decisions.

Local Authority Administration (NACLAA I) Advanced Certificate student

The course­work was very relat­able. I found that all of the cours­es were applic­a­ble to my day-to-day func­tion at work.

Nation­al Advanced Cer­tifi­cate in Local Author­i­ty Admin­is­tra­tion Lev­el I student

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

Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment and Admin­is­tra­tion Certificate student

The infor­ma­tion I gath­ered from the cours­es was very rel­e­vant to my job. I was also able to estab­lish con­tacts with oth­er stu­dents that are employed in the same sector.

Applied Land Use Plan­ning Certificate student

The learn­ing con­tent is awe­some and high­ly applic­a­ble to many work scenarios.

Leadership Advanced Certificate student

I enjoyed learn­ing new cur­ricu­lum and meet­ing like-mind­ed stu­dents in the same field.

Construction Management & Administration Certificate student

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.

Man­age­ment Devel­op­ment Cer­tifi­cate for Pro­fes­sion­al Engi­neers & Geoscientists student

The cours­es blend­ed with my cur­rent line of work and, at the same time, pro­vid­ed me with new insight into a broad­er range of pri­va­cy topics.

Infor­ma­tion Access and Pro­tec­tion of Pri­va­cy Certificate student

The fac­ul­ty is real­ly good. They often shared their real-life expe­ri­ences with us, which was a great way of learn­ing more about the world of business.

Busi­ness Analy­sis Pro­fes­sion­al Citation student

It was an amaz­ing expe­ri­ence and learn­ing jour­ney. I high­ly rec­om­mend the ALUP pro­gram to any­one inter­est­ed in the field.

Applied Land Use Planning Certificate student

The pro­gram is extreme­ly well pre­sent­ed and the instruc­tors are great. The inter­ac­tion with oth­er stu­dents also helped me expand my under­stand­ing of OHS in oth­er industries.

Occupational Health & Safety Certificate student

This is the best pro­gram for pro­fes­sion­als work­ing in munic­i­pal government.

Local Authority Administration (NACLAA II) Advanced Certificate student

The course out­lines and assign­ments are great.

Social Media Certificate student

I’ve gained a great deal of knowl­edge from the program.

Management Development Certificate student

I learned a lot about teach­ing meth­ods, edu­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies, and pro­nun­ci­a­tions. Espe­cial­ly, it is still not com­mon in Japan to use those edu­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies, I think they are very use­ful and help­ful for both teach­ers and students.

Eng­lish Medi­um Instruction student

I real­ly enjoyed the flex­i­bil­i­ty to work and study at the same time. The evening class­es helped a lot.

Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment and Admin­is­tra­tion Certificate student

I was very impressed with the lec­tures: the instruc­tor gen­er­ous­ly shared her own L2 learn­er’s expe­ri­ences with us and the teacher’s atti­tudes she showed us today came from her own experiences.

Eng­lish Medi­um Instruction student

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

Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment and Admin­is­tra­tion Certificate student

The pro­gram is very rel­e­vant to munic­i­pal operations.

Nation­al Advanced Cer­tifi­cate in Local Author­i­ty Admin­is­tra­tion Lev­el I student

The infor­ma­tion and expe­ri­ence gained were very use­ful, and I real­ly enjoyed the inter­ac­tion with the instruc­tors and my classmates.

Supervisory Development Citation student

The instruc­tors are excel­lent. This is a great pro­gram for munic­i­pal gov­ern­ment leaders.

Local Authority Administration (NACLAA I) Advanced Certificate student

Con­struc­tion is a major part of archi­tec­ture. As an archi­tec­tur­al design­er, I found the pro­gram to be very beneficial.

Construction Management & Administration Certificate student

This pro­gram was designed in col­lab­o­ra­tion with my employ­er, so obvi­ous­ly what you learn is some­thing that they feel you need to know. I par­tic­u­lar­ly enjoyed how the anec­dotes from instruc­tors and class­mates helped to bring the infor­ma­tion to life and gave it con­crete meaning.

Management Development for Police Services Certificate student
