Message from the Dean
Welcome to the Faculty of Arts, Business, and Science.  We are committed to excellence in all that we do, and we offer you high quality educational experiences where you can discover, learn, and challenge yourself in a personalized atmosphere where instructors are available to work one-on-one to support you as you achieve your academic and personal goals. 

A degree from the Faculty of Arts, Business, and Science will help to develop important employment skills such as critical thinking, communication and other practical skills that prepare you for a broad range of career options, and help you to make informed decisions and make a difference in your life and in the lives of the people around you. We believe that your post-secondary education experience should help you explore what you love, develop knowledge and skills, and become someone who continues to enjoy learning throughout your life.
The Faculty offers a variety of programs, including degrees in Aboriginal and Northern Studies, Business, English and History, as well as a minor in science. We also offer diploma and certificate programs, including Aboriginal Human Resource Management, Business Administration, Community Development Administration, First Nations Active Measures, Natural Resources Management Technology, and Office Administration. Our programs are offered in a variety of locations in northern Manitoba, bringing education ‘close to home’, wherever possible. 
When you choose a Faculty of Arts, Business, and Science program, you will learn relevant and comprehensive skills in a diverse environment that acknowledges and celebrates the Aboriginal and Northern cultures, traditions and spiritual values that are the root of the communities and people of Northern Manitoba. Further, our business courses are recognized for credit by external bodies such as the Certified General Accountants Association of Canada (CGA), and Aboriginal Financial Officers Association (AFOA), and provide you with the academic requirements towards professional designations such as those offered by the Council for the Advancement of Native Development Officers (CANDO).
Whether you are a recent high school graduate, considering a job change, or have been out of school for a while, I invite you to explore our website and academic calendar to learn more about our programming and to consider what would best fit your interests, goals and lifestyle.
