Aboriginal entrepreneurs are the key to building a healthy economy both on and off reserve. Over 34,000 Aboriginal entrepreneurs across Canada operate businesses that contribute to local economies, sustain home communities and compete in global markets.
The Aboriginal Management Certificate Program adopts a hands-on approach to understanding how to describe and think through a business model for your business idea, council or economic development corporation. Participants will develop an understanding of four main areas of a business: customers, the business offering, the business infrastructure and its financial viability. The program will adopt a business modelling process that will result in a blueprint for a strategy that will be developed into a viable and realistic business plan.
The Ch’nook Aboriginal Management Certificate integrates Aboriginal values with the business skills required for success in managing existing businesses or in developing new and successful ones.
