Overview of Business Programs
Business Administration and Management
Our Business programs have been developed to provide students with the competencies required for their chosen specialization. The areas of specialization include Accounting, Marketing and Human Resource Management. All programs emphasize the latest business applications and also aim to develop leadership, teamwork and problem solving skills.
Students have the option of completing a Business Administration Certificate (one year), Business Administration Diploma (two years) or Business Management Diploma (three years). Business programs have a common first year, at the end of which a student may graduate with a Business Administration Certificate. Students in their second year have the option to select an area of specialization and may graduate with a Business Administration Diploma. Students in the third year can continue in their area of specialization and may graduate with a Business Management Diploma.
Our Office Administration programs enable students to acquire the knowledge and skills required to work in today’s office environment. The areas of specialization include Executive, Legal, Medical, and Records and Information Management.
Students have the option of completing an Office Administration Certificate (one year) or a two-year diploma. The first year of the Office Administration program is a common first year, at the end of which students may graduate with an Office Administration Certificate.

The School of Business incorporates work exposure/experience components in all programs, providing students with an opportunity to practice their knowledge and skills through work placements with local, and at times, national and international businesses.
Placements often result in students securing employment with their host employers. This allows students to display acquired talents in the workplace and gives them a competitive advantage.
