When Cathy Gravelle wanted real world knowledge in real world time, she turned to University of Waterloo’s Professional Development Department and was quite pleased with the results.
“I definitely found gems I’ll be able to use right now,” she said after recently completing a Professional Development In-class Course.
Cathy, the Executive Assistant to Kitchener’s Mayor Carl Zehr, is just one of the thousands of working professionals that depend on UW Professional Development to provide practical information that can be implemented immediately in the workplace.
“Our students’ vocation of choice may differ but they all have one thing in common: They want a future filled of opportunity and prosperity. Our job is to help make it happen,” says Michael Hunt, Associate Director of Professional Development.
“To make it happen,” adds Hunt, “our department consults with other business-focused departments on campus and business leaders throughout Canada for expert insight into the changes and innovations that will shape the workplace of the future.”
The insight gained from these consultations has fostered strong partnerships within the University of Waterloo and beyond and has led to the transformation of many university-based courses into non-credit Professional Development courses specifically designed for the adult learner.
We offer a variety of interactive In-class Courses, over 100 flexible online courses and customized corporate training - all aimed at improving your workplace performance and increasing your work opportunities. Whatever your personal, professional or career goals, our programs can give you the edge you need to succeed.
It’s your future. Make it happen.
