Executive Programs

We’re proud to present the Goodman Executive Programs


Executive programs are a cornerstone of the Goodman School of Mines’ identity and are designed to be a key part of a “Life Long Learning” strategy for students, graduates, professionals and community members alike. Their creation at undergraduate and graduate levels, in modular, short-course and distance education formats will fit with personal education choices to receive instruction in the classroom, at home and in remote communities or job sites.


Each Executive program is made up of a series of mini-modules that can be taken individually or in series. An official Laurentian University certificate of participation will be awarded to the participant if all mini-modules are completed. Participation in the courses can be used as professional development hours and in some cases will count as professional certification.
