UFV, McDonald’s partner on university credentials

August 29, 2019

The University of the Fraser Valley has partnered with McDonald’s Canada to create new pathways for McDonald’s restaurant managers to pursue university credentials. A release states that prospective students who have completed management training courses at McDonald’s and meet UFV’s admission requirements can receive credit toward one of four options at UFV: a Bachelor of Integrated Studies degree, a Hospitality and Event Planning certificate, a Management Skills certificate, or a General Studies diploma. “This is an incredibly important partnership and well-deserved recognition for people in management,” said McDonald’s franchisee Sid Johnson. “We take great pride in the rigour of our training programs and the skills our people are able to hone at McDonald’s.” UFV | Vancouver Sun (BC)
