Join us at Laurier

Being a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

The Lazaridis EMTM addresses the overlapping disciplines of business and technology. It emphasizes high-level executive training and prepares leaders to adapt to business disruption in a high-speed, high-cost, high-risk global environment.

Our executive management program is designed for senior decision-makers of innovative enterprises, and its impact is both immediate and ongoing. After only the first sessions, our candidates are able to begin implementing new strategies at their organizations. They gain better leadership capabilities and the confidence to creatively address a broad range of business challenges. Candidates have advanced to more senior roles and become greater contributors to organizational success.

Lazaridis EMTM learners also form lifelong personal ties with their classmates, Laurier faculty and participating guest lecturers from top-tiered universities and companies.
