Business is changing with the times, and for those interested in keeping up with the times, ongoing learning just might be required. Whether it’s a business owner looking to update their skills to enhance their own business or a young person just starting out with post-secondary education, there are options for next fall for the direction they choose.

Registrations for Fall 2019 post-secondary full-time programs are now being accepted by Southeast College. Added to the business program is the second year diploma program for Business Management.

This year, the program launched with a one-year certificate.

“This year is the first year of that program, which is actually a business certificate program, so students can take that program and move on into entry-level business positions after this year,” said Marketing and Communications Manager, Sheena Onrait.

The two-year program, however, takes a more focused approach to business management.

“We hope and encourage students to take the two-year program,” said Onrait. “So next year will be a specialty in that management sector of business programming. It’s over-arching management strategies, business strategies, so it really gives an in-depth but also big-picture business management experience for students.”

As for what the student will do with the one- or two-year program, the options are endless.

“Students could walk into an entry-level or possibly even a middle management type position, depending on their experience before, depending on what the business is hiring for, usually entry-level banking positions. The management is really, really a huge draw to any type of business position that a student may be interested in.”

Registration has begun for the program. Students can find application forms at the college website or visit the campus.
