Your Learning Experience

Business Fundamentals is a one-year Ontario College Certificate program. This program is designed to build fundamental business skills. This program is ideal for students who want to strengthen their foundational skills (math, writing, communication) before entering a two-year business diploma program; mature students who are preparing to re-enter the workforce; and international students.

Because the second semester of the program is predominantly the common first semester shared by all two-year diploma programs in the Lawrence Kinlin School of Business, graduates may choose to transfer directly into the second semester of any business diploma program; alternatively, they may enter the workforce in various entry-level positions. This program is also available part-time/online.

Available in a traditional in-class format with September, January, and May admissions. This program is offered at more than one campus for your convenience.
