You will.

In just 12 weeks. That’s what makes NorQuest College’s Managerial Excellence Microcredential unique. Not only will you leave with a new understanding of leadership, but you’ll also have experience applying your knowledge in the community. Combining experiential learning and community-based projects, we offer you a mix of unconventional education and an environment full of diverse thinkers, connections to local business professionals, and opportunities to gain hands-on experience within Edmonton. It’s what makes NorQuest the ideal place for you to become a leader.

Upon completion of your 12-week learning experience, you will put your skills to the test in a Community Action Project. This project is a team-based activity exploring a real community issue. In addition, you will earn a micro-credential certificate to boost your LinkedIn profile and help you stand out in the job market.


The world has changed over the past few years. Business has too. Leaders today must be able to connect local issues to larger global themes. Understanding your local community and navigating real-life business problems is a must.

The Managerial Excellence Microcredential will allow you to meet local professionals and understand the business challenges they face. Most importantly, you’ll make new connections and grow your network—because in business, it’s who you know.
