Develop The Foundations of Your Future

Business is quickly growing to become one of the most popular programs for students and there is a reason for that: there are endless career opportunities once students have received their diploma. All industries are open to those who have an education in business. Whether or not you are definite about your career or still unsure, the pursuit of a business qualification will open a wide range of opportunities for exciting careers. 


Learn how to research information and practice quantitative skills in order to develop your own solutions


Become well-versed in public speaking, analysing data, accounting, and team-work.


The Business program is the stepping stone for students who pursue further education and careers.

Built on a strong foundation of marketing, human resources, and accounting, the two-year Business diploma appeals to students interested in a broad, well-integrated education.

Students become effective leaders and communicators in this program. They accomplish this by developing presentation skills, networking strategies and how to best represent themselves and their skills through interviews and resumes. Students learn how to apply various skills such as problem solving, teamwork, and intercultural communication to projects at the college and in the community establishing themselves as global business citizens.

The Business diploma program provides opportunities for rewarding careers in business and for further education, such as the Bachelor of Business Administration and international studies through St. Lawrence College.

Once students receive their St. Lawrence College Certificate, they are eligible to apply for their Post Graduate Work Permit.

The Business program content prepares students for employment in a variety of roles in this growing industry. Graduates will find challenging employment as: 

  • Assistant Sales Supervisor 
  • Management Consultant 
  • Sales Representative
  • Operations Assistant
