Humber’s Business Administration advanced diploma program allows you to develop extensive knowledge on how businesses work and teaches you to become competent in the full range of skills needed to facilitate business operations.
Courses in operations management, accounting, human resources management, marketing research and much more will give you the opportunity to cultivate key business skills such as communication, teamwork, project management and strategic business analysis. This program is built on a common platform of a solid business education – principles of management, marketing, business law, finance mathematics and microeconomics. This common platform is shared with other business diploma programs in year one and is expanded on in year two.
You’ll be assisted in finding a paid or unpaid business work placement where you’ll practise your skills during an 84-hour assignment. This adds valuable hands-on experience to your resumé. Close relationships with the business professionals who constantly update the curriculum will give you valuable networking contacts.
The Humber Experience
Vanier BDC Case Challenge 2017
As an opportunity for students to apply their classroom knowledge and training to a true to life business experience, students have the opportunity to participate in the annual Vanier College Case Challenge. This inter-collegial business/marketing case competition involves colleges from across Canada in an intense 2 day event where students have limited time to analyze and develop a full case analysis and then present to a panel of judges and an audience of peers and rivals.
"The experience I gained from the competition was incredible. It added another another dimension to my education." - Johnny Sheridan
“I have learned so much about start-up enterprises, from keeping track of revenue and expenses, to running a functioning business to all aspects of marketing. I have a really good perspective and look forward to working for a start-up in the future, or managing my own.”
