Interesting to see Grant Fraser’s Golf Management Institute of Canada ink a deal with Laurier University. The deal allows continuing studies students to take an online program in golf operations management. According to Fraser, this is unique in Canada — and I know he was working behind the scenes to put this together for a long time.
Here are the details:
Commencing in March, the first of 10 courses will be available to GMIC students through Laurier’s online course delivery system. After completing the program, students will obtain a Graduate Studies Diploma in Golf Operations Management from the GMIC and a Certificate of Completion in Golf Operations from Wilfrid Laurier University.
GMIC president and Laurier alumni Grant Fraser is enthusiastic about working with Laurier. “This is the first golf management program of any kind to be delivered in partnership with a Canadian university,” said Fraser. “Laurier’s reputation as one of Canada’s leading universities will allow us to continue expanding our program in golf operations management around the world.”
“Continuing Studies is very excited to be launching this new partnership with GMIC,” said Lisa Fanjoy, manager of Laurier’s Continuing Studies department. “This collaboration will allow GMIC students to engage in the Laurier experience, while adding to the diversity of continuing studies program opportunities for the Laurier community.”
