The two-year Business program is the optimal way for students to begin their business education and set themselves up for several career paths. Students looking to work in an existing organization, take over a family-run business or start their own business, will find that this program offers all the important foundational courses.

In the first year, students will be introduced to the fundamentals of business management with courses including marketing, human resources, accounting, computer applications, global business principles and ethics. Second year will expand on these foundations with advanced business courses that all organizations consider essential. Students will study current trends and issues in social media marketing, organizational behaviour, business intelligence, business law, operations management, and economics.

This program allows for maximum flexibility as students can transfer into the three-year Business Administration - General program at any time. After term 1, students can move directly into term 2 of the two-year Business - Accounting or the three-year Business Administration - Accounting programs.
