Aboriginal Administration

Northwestern Polytechnic

Northwestern Polytechnic
The Aboriginal Administration Diploma is an interdisciplinary program designed to provide students with basic business knowledge, an introduction to aboriginal, and the academic experience to develop essential skills for critical thinking, research, writing and planning skills. With this foundation, graduates will be prepared to pursue entry-level careers within a wide range of organizations and businesses. This program blends GPRC courses/curriculum with optional coursework from the Aboriginal Finance Officers Association of Canada (AFOA). This brings both flexibility and robustness to the program. This diploma also serves as an entry to further post-secondary degree studies. The purposes of this program are: a) to provide a practical, accessible, regionally-appropriate diploma with an aboriginal focus b) to provide graduates with entry level knowledge and skills relevant for business and aboriginal organizations c) to increase study options for either students with an aboriginal background or non-aboriginal students who have an interest in working within an aboriginal context
