Academic Preparatory Studies

Based on placement test scores on the College entrance examinations for English and mathematics, students may automatically be placed in preparatory business courses in addition to preparatory math and language studies courses. These courses are designed to improve the language skills of students to help them succeed in their business program of studies.


The Office Administration (Executive), Business Administration and Business Management programs at the College have been accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Founded in 1988 in the United States, ACBSP awards accreditation to business schools based on the mission of the institution and of the business program with an emphasis on quality in teaching and learning outcomes.

ACBSP is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).

Students in these programs can be assured of the quality of the education they receive. Accreditation means that these programs have been evaluated against an international standard of excellence and that the programs maintain relevant and current program content taught by well-qualified faculty.
