The Faculty of Business offers diverse programs reflecting the broad spectrum of business in the marketplace. Programs range from marketing, accounting, human resources, international business, law, and fashion and spa management. Through working facilities and on-campus business models, real-world learning is part of the classroom experience.
The Accounting Centre is a resource available to all students enrolled in accounting courses for Diploma, Degree, Certificate and Part-time programs. We provide assistance with textbook concepts, homework questions and an overall understanding of course material from 1st to 6th semester.
Situated at Lakeshore Campus, this working lab allows students to simulate real-life trading of stocks, bonds, funds, and currencies. The trading floor adds an experiential learning element and allows students to experience what it’s like to be a trader and portfolio manager. In addition to a full lab of finance application-enabled computer terminals, a stock ticker display, and screens capturing key market data, the trading floor is equipped with 12 state-of-the-art Bloomberg terminals. Bloomberg is an information and trading platform that finance professionals use for reading financial news, performing market and company analyses, and accessing a tremendous amount of current and historical data. Finance degree students are able to earn a Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC) certification. The trading floor lab, including Bloomberg, is integrated into a number of our finance degree courses.

This storefront building located at Lake Shore and Kipling provides a visual anchor for Humber’s commitment to linking the real world to the classroom. A street-level window display allows students and graduates to showcase their work.
With the launch of the Third Floor Fashion District at the North comes “The Pop-Up Shop”. A competitive venture where students can pitch ideas to book the space, set up shop, and put it to work for a week. We see this concept being utilized by our marketing students and event students, fashion students and even accounting students as well as groups of business school students who bring brilliant ideas to the table. We want our students to dream big and we are giving them the platform they need to test their entrepreneurial skills.
This full-service classroom and retail boutique is open to the public. Students manage the administrative functions as well as work under the guidance of qualified instructors providing facials, hand & foot care, and body treatments to clientele.
