The First Nations University of Canada Master of Business Administration specializing in Indigenous Management is a 12-month program, offered in partnership with the University of Saskatchewan, primarily designed 'for individuals looking at a career in Aboriginal economic and business development, individuals working in Aboriginal communities looking to develop their management skills and those working in non-Aboriginal organizations focusing on Aboriginal relations.' Within the Indigenous Management specializations are 4 sub-concentrations which students may choose to major in including Contemporary Issues in Indigenous Management and Economic Development, Implications of Treaties and Self Government on Management Decision-making, Issues in Aboriginal Economic and Business Development, and Management of Aboriginal Organizations. The Program is 'intensive and highly integrated' focussing on the real-world application of the knowledge learned by the student and delivered in a 'diverse and innovative' fashion including case studies, group-work simulations, lectures, sharing circles, and guest speakers 'who have specific expertise in Aboriginal business.' The Program is offered in both a full-time and part-time basis; the latter, however, is only available following successful completion of the first semester.
