Program Highlights

Earn two credentials in only one year of study* with the International Management Graduate Program (INMA).

Master the skills and knowledge you'll need to pursue a global career in business with a Graduate Diploma in International Management from Capilano University and a Master of Science (M.Sc.) in International Business from our partner institution, the University of Hertfordshire (UH), in the United Kingdom.
