Overview

The Management and Leadership Diploma with Co-op program combines an International Business Management Skills diploma with a Leadership Preparation diploma to create a strong basis for career growth, enabling graduates to be prepared for promotion to higher levels in their careers.

• The International Business Management Skills (IBMS) Diploma program covers the cultural context of global management, creating global teams and networks, cross-cultural negotiation and decision-making, international management ethics, risk assessment and management, trade finance, management accounting, payment methods, and formulating global strategies.

• The Leadership Preparation Diploma (LPD) program introduces concepts and skills needed to be a future leader. LPD enables students to develop strong decision-making and organizational skills, to clarify goals and to lead a team in achieving them.

Co-op students find work in a business related to their interests once their study term is complete.

How it Works

The Management and Leadership Diploma with Co-op will get you working in Canada. You will gain knowledge and skills that you can apply in your co-op work term and then your career.

You can choose to include LCC’s Business Diploma Program (BDP) as part of this Co-op program.  The Business Diploma program will provide you with information about Canadian workplace practices, and support you to create a Canadian-style resume.

Study Term

During your study term, you will complete the required coursework for the IBMS and LPD diplomas. You will also take elective courses to improve your English language skills and competencies.

Work Term

During your work term, you will find a job which allows you to apply your new knowledge and skills. LCC offers free job support services to help co-op students find work.

The number of hours you work will be the same as (not more than) the number of hours in your study term.
