The Co-operatives and Mutuals Strategic Development Program (CMSDP)

10 March 2021 09:00 - 12 March 2021 17:00

AIM WA UWA Business School

Offered through AIM WA UWA Business School Executive Education, this three day program has been designed by Winthrop Professor Tim Mazzarol following extensive research into the needs of co-operative and mutual organisations. 

The Program can be run in “bespoke” versions for co-operative and mutual enterprises (CMEs), including agricultural co-ops, to assist their boards and members to fully understand not only what a CME is and why it has a unique business model, but to examine how they can either build new co-ops that have the right foundations strategically rather than just compliant with legislation, or to innovate their existing business model. The emphasis is on applied strategic thinking and application of strategic management principles. The entire course has been developed from in-depth research at an international level, into the CME business model.

This course is assessed as Adept level and will require participants to have some knowledge and experience of the co-operative business model.

The Co-operative Farming program offers a 90% bursary for this course. Find out more and apply for a bursary. Subject to approval, you will receive an email from the Co-operative Farming program confirming your successful application and with a discount code that you should apply at the checkout, this will ensure your payment is reduced to 10% of the full cost (Cost with bursary: $286 incl.
