Canadian Managing General Agent Program Courses

The Canadian Managing General Agent courses are delivered through facilitated online learning. There is no weekly live class, but all students follow the same weekly schedule for readings, assignments, and graded online interaction under the guidance of an instructor. For each course there is a comprehensive textbook developed in collaboration with industry subject matter experts. 

Time commitment: About 6-8 hours a week per course to complete readings, learning activities and online discussion.

We recommend that you take only one course at a time, and that you complete the courses in the order listed.
