The Business programs prepare students to enter the world of work, preparing them for employment with any organization, company or government agency. 

Our programs provide students with the knowledge, skills, and experience to compete in today’s workplace, in a variety of business disciplines, including accounting, marketing, and human resources. Our highly qualified faculty has prepared more than 1700 graduates for work.


    Students in Business Studies have the option of completing programs in Office Administration, Business Administration and Business Management. Students pursuing careers as administrative professionals can undertake a certificate in Office Administration or a diploma in Office Administration (Executive). Students who would like to specialize in accounting, human resource management, or marketing may obtain a diploma in Business Administration or Business Management.

    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).
