Program Overview

Learn about Canada’s dynamic business scene and develop the foundation to ignite your career within it. Humber’s Business Management diploma program gets down to business with a practical, skills-based approach that will help you to begin a journey to achieve your goals and make a difference in organizations.

Our curriculum gets you up to speed on the essential aspects of business including marketing, e-commerce, accounting, operations management, business writing and communications. Through individual and group assignments in courses taught by experienced professionals and entrepreneurs, you’ll build your business management knowledge and gain first-hand insights into current business practices, trends and opportunities. You will develop the practical skills today's employers demand through experiential learning opportunities including unique courses built around challenging business simulations, and even opportunities to build and participate in managing a real business.

In the first year, you will be introduced to an overview of fundamental business disciplines including the mathematics of finance, PC essentials, marketing, microeconomics, business law, services marketing and the principles of management.

In the second year, the focus includes business computer applications, e-commerce, human resources administration, operations management, business finance, leadership, entrepreneurship, and a capstone course where students learn to manage strategically.

Work-Integrated Learning  

In Semester 4, you will be assisted in finding a paid or unpaid business where you will practise your skills during an 84-hour assignment. This adds valuable hands-on experience to your resumé and provides excellent networking opportunities.
