Program Consultation

We can develop a unique program for you, and almost any Acadia course can be customized to fit your organization's needs. We can adapt an existing online course to match the learning outcomes you desire, or we can build an online version of an on-campus course, if that's what your group needs. We also offer graduate degrees in specialized online and campus formats, with dedicated client service to match.

The Where and When

Programs can be delivered in the most convenient location for your organization, whether it's on-campus or on-site. We can develop a schedule that best suits your needs.

Program Management

We will coordinate all aspects of the program including development, course material preparation, scheduling, logistical arrangements (including catering), according to your requirements and budget.

Program Instruction and Facilitation

Acadia University's faculty and professionals combine their teaching experience and consulting expertise to provide learners with practical, hands-on skills that can be utilized in their work environments.

Online Options

Programs can be delivered entirely online in a number of ways, or in a blended model that combines face-to-face workshops with online self-study. Your online course can also be branded to match your organization, and we have years of experience with broadcasting online video and with incorporating virtual classroom elements.

Small Business, Big Marketing

This course is a self-paced, online course.  Registration is open, and you can start anytime!

In this course developed and delivered by the Acadia Centre for Social and Business Entrepreneurship (ACSBE), you will learn to apply the winning principles of small business marketing.  You’ll learn that while expensive media tools have their time and place, there are sometimes more creative – and cost-effective – ways to find and keep customers during the start-up and early growth phase of your business. Using real life examples and case studies, you will examine how entrepreneurs just like you launched and grew their businesses on a shoestring budget. At the conclusion of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Effectively integrate all 4Ps of marketing (product, price, place, promotion), and understand that marketing is about much, much more than advertising
  • Identify and apply the marketing tools entrepreneurs use when they lack vast financial resources
  • Explain and apply strategies associated with product development, pricing, distribution, and promotion
  • Assess your current marketing practices and measure their progress over time.

This course is offered online. You will receive instructions to access the course and information regarding online support during the course once you have registered.
