  • Industry experienced professors provide real-world connections to learning.

  • Flexible learning options (traditional classrooms, online options, and virtual classes)

  • 7 to 8-week unpaid placement provides valuable real-world experience and connections to the business world

Fieldwork/Placement

All Business Administration students are required to complete an unpaid placement in the final semester of the program. The placement provides an opportunity for students to put their business skills to the test in an actual workplace of their choice. This hands-on approach allows students to gain experience in their chosen field while building relationships and their resumes.
