Program Description

Becoming a good manager can be challenging; it's not just about inputs and outputs. You'll need to make key strategic decisions, often without complete information, which will seriously affect your company's direction. In the Business Administration – Management program, you'll learn all about these types of situations and acquire the knowledge to make smart decisions.

At the School of Business Management, you will spend the first four semesters building a practical grounding in contemporary management theory. These four semesters are common to all School of Business Management diploma programs.

In your last two semesters, your instructors will help you fine-tune your business expertise and employability skills. You'll focus on the professional skills required by today's managers, including leadership, decision-making, ethics, strategy formulation, project management and communication.

You'll also benefit from our relationships with a variety of employers who help to keep the program (and your skills) up to date and relevant to the demands of today's organizations.

The program curriculum offers innovative approaches to learning, including seminars, value-added presentations, case analyses, online business simulations and external consulting projects.
