The practicum is the final course in most post-degree programs. It is the culmination of your work in the classroom and the bridge to a great career in your target industry. Through the practicum, students gain valuable hands-on experience, a strong network of industry contacts, and an ‘edge’ in the job search process.
Working one-on-one with the Practicum Coordinator, you will develop a strong resume, improve your interview skills and secure a practicum that matches your career goals.
It is our expectation that you will achieve the best possible practicum experience available and we have a strong history of partnering with recognized organizations in London, across Canada and beyond.
“The Not-for-Profit Management diploma program was the greatest decision I made after graduating. I learned about the growing potential and tremendous impact that nonprofits have in our daily lives and the countless career opportunities in this sector. This knowledge was enhanced during my practicum. I was fortunate enough to work with a dynamic and well respected organization, London Community Foundation, which introduced me to various professionals, in both the not-for-profit and for-profit sector. The skills and experience I gained from the program and my practicum are ones that will benefit me in any future career, and ones I will keep forever.”
