The IME program is a year-long curriculum only offered on the Lethbridge campus. Each semester, students take two three credit classes (for a total of six-credit hours). For the first semester, students must take Management 3091, the equivalent of taking Management 3050: Human Resource Management, and 3920: Project Management. In the second semester students take Management 3031 and Management 3650. Students also have the option to register for an applied study (in the Spring Semester) which takes place throughout the entire year, and is worth three credits.

Fall Semester Management 3091
IME Applied Study - MGT 3890
IME students who wish to register for an Applied Study in the Spring Semester will earn an additional three credits in the IME program. Students will be given three credit recognition for experiential worked completed over the two semesters (Fall and Spring).
Some additional scholarly activity (including a major paper) supporting the experiential work completed both semesters will need to be completed, but you will be able to receive recognition for the experiential (applied) work being completed during the school year!
This Applied Study is optional, you do not have to register for it but it makes sense to as it can potentially reduce your course requirements for graduation by a three credit course.
