What our partner says
“The Municipal Administration program arms our members with the ability to do a very difficult task, being Chief Administrative Officers of municipalities. It’s a specific skill set that isn’t necessarily acquired in any other program.
“We are constantly working with the university to better deliver the program, with feedback from our members. I feel the University of Manitoba’s Extended Education program has been wonderful for me to work with both as a student and on a professional level.”
– Adrienne Bestland, Executive Director, Manitoba Municipal Administrators’ Association
