AFOA Canada and TRU sign articulation agreement

May 18, 2016

Thompson Rivers University has signed an articulation agreement with AFOA Canada that will allow certain AFOA graduates to apply credits to business degrees at TRU. Under the new arrangement, graduates of the Certified Aboriginal Financial Managers and Certified Aboriginal Professional Administrators programs can apply credits towards TRU’s Bachelor of Business Administration, Bachelor of Commerce, or Bachelor of Public Administration. “The new partnership supports TRU’s strategic priority of promoting diversity, inclusion, and intercultural understanding with the Aboriginal community. It also greatly expands Aboriginal educational opportunities in the areas of Aboriginal self-governance and economic development,” said Dan Thompson, TRU’s Associate Dean of the School of Business and Economics. AFOA recently signed similar agreements with Cape Breton University and Nipissing University.
