The Industry

Industry Feedback:

"George Brown’s Project Management field education course has allowed us to work with students on new projects that would have otherwise been delayed. The PM students, who had great talents and a diverse work and academic background, used their project management tools and planning processes skills to help Retail Council of Canada develop important operational procedures in membership and event management.

I would strongly recommend private and not-for-profit businesses take advantage of this valuable program that offers students real-life projects to test their skills for a career in project management and that also benefit participating companies."

Success Stories

Vakhid Mamedov

“All professors at George Brown College were very professional and helpful. I learned a lot from them: how to implement projects, how to plan and monitor them, and finally, how to close projects. One of the most important learnings of the program was how to communicate with clients and stakeholders at a high level. I enjoyed the studying process a lot. The network that I’ve earned while studying helped me get a job after graduation.”
