The Government of the Northwest Territories is seeking input on two post-secondary education institution applications to deliver diploma-granting programs in the territory. College of Northern Canada is applying to provide a Global Tourism Management diploma program and Global Logistics diploma program within the Northwest Territories beginning in January 2024.
The Global Tourism Management program is intended to provide students with a broad-based, academically rigorous study of management concepts, theories, and techniques as they apply to the international tourism and travel industry. The curriculum will integrate theoretical knowledge with practical skills, aimed at ensuring graduates are prepared to contribute to the growth and sustainability of the Northern travel and tourism sector. Have your say on the proposed Global Tourism Management diploma program here.
The Diploma in Global Logistics program is intended to equip students with advanced skills and insights for navigating today's complex international logistics environment, uniquely tailored to meet the needs of Northern Canada. Have your say on the proposed Global Logistics diploma program here.
In December 2022, the Northwest Territories Post-Secondary Education Act and Regulations came into force as part of the government’s work to build a comprehensive post-secondary education system. Within the system, when an institution wishes to provide a post-secondary education program in the NWT, they submit an application which is posted for 15 business days for public and existing NWT post-secondary institution review.
Feedback will be collected until October 23, 2023.
