Make the World of Business Your Business

The business world encompasses a variety of jobs that range from entry-level to managerial and beyond. Centennial College’s Business program provides students with education, knowledge and training in broad areas of business that will see them entering entry-level jobs across any industry or figuring out which area suits them best before they go on to specialized training.

The program emphasizes skills such as mathematical computing, analytical disciplines and communication. It also provides a solid foundation in contemporary concepts, theories and business practices that are related to the functional areas of the business world. There is also technology-supported learning in and out of the classroom. Students of the program do case studies, research, participate in teamwork, and more through courses such as Strategies for Business Success, Mathematics of Finance, Business Operations, Human Resource Management, Principles of Marketing, Retailing and more. As you can see, the courses encompass a very wide range of business, which ensures that you graduate with enough knowledge to make a well-informed decision about the area in which you want to specialize. The program takes two years to complete and in order to graduate, students must have a minimum C grade average and an overall GPA of 2.0. Once you graduate, you are able to pursue a career or, if eligible, participate in articulated programs with selected universities, institutes and professional associations. These partnerships allow students to apply credits earned at Centennial College towards further study at other institutions. Check out the school’s partners by viewing the Business program benefits page.

However, as with any other college program, before being accepted to the Business offering, students must meet a few prerequisites. Centennial College expects applicants to present at minimum an Ontario Secondary School Diploma or equivalent or be 19 years of age or older. They must also possess a compulsory English 12C or U or skills assessment, or equivalent and Math 11C, M or U, or 12C or U or skills assessment, or equivalent. Possession of minimum admission requirements does not guarantee entry to the program.

Once you are accepted, meet the requirements of both years of the program, and decide to pursue a career upon graduation, you may be employed in a number of positions. Graduates of the Business program secure entry-level positions as: customer service representatives, procurement assistants, human resources generalists, marketing assistants, service supervisors, junior business analysts, operations coordinators and insurance claims representatives.
