The University of Lethbridge’s Dhillon School of Business has officially launched a new diploma in Indigenous Governance and Business Management (IGBM).

Following completion of the IGBM program, students can ladder the diploma into ULethbridge’s Bachelor of Management degree program. Dhillon School of Business Dean Dr Kerry Godfrey said that this program meets a critical need in the workforce. “[B]usiness training, with a strong focus on Indigenous business and governance topics, is in demand and offers significant opportunities for graduates to meet the growing need in both private and public employment spheres,” said Godfrey.
