The U of A’s Faculty of Extension is widely regarded among business and government leaders for its ability to provide professional education that responds to the evolving industry needs.

The instruc­tors were very pro­fes­sion­al, knowl­edge­able, and sup­port­ive. I learned a lot from their com­ments and crit­i­cisms. Inter­act­ing with stu­dents from oth­er provinces all over Cana­da was also great.
