An exceptional learning experience rooted in a tradition of teaching

The strength of Executive Education at Capilano University is rooted in our tradition of delivering outstanding learning experiences. Because we’re a teaching institution—not a research one—we are able to focus on teaching and facilitation. We zero in on what is relevant to you and fellow participants and create a learning experience based around the learning outcomes. We like to think we offer ‘personalized inspiration’—offering the best of both worlds; a university-based curriculum rooted in a more personalized style of learning.

Relevance through open, interactive learning environments

Because our core strength is teaching, we foster learning environments that are designed to be flexible enough to respond to participant needs and let our instructors go ‘off-script’ when necessary. That’s why we encourage you to bring your business questions into the classroom. It encourages in-depth discussion about real problems faced in real offices and organizations. This approach gives our instructors the freedom to combine their expertise and experience in a way that addresses how best practices, applied research and business theory can be translated into practical skills that can be put to use immediately in the workplace.

Learn like you’re there—instructors who tell it like it is

In addition to accomplished teachers, our instructors are also industry practitioners with strong track records. They bring both academic theory and in-the-trenches insight to the table. The result is that you gain knowledge and techniques that are insightful, useful and usable.
