Welcome to the Business Studies Department

Business is an integral part of every young adult’s future. It influences their careers, incomes and opportunities for personal enterprise. Business has a significant effect on the standard of living and the quality of life of Canadians, while having a growing impact on the environment in which they live. Young adults must be prepared to engage in business activities with confidence and competence, both nationally and internationally.



Students who pursue a business education will develop an understanding of how business functions, the role it plays in society and the opportunities it generates. Business studies creates a strong foundation for those who wish to train in specialized areas such as management, international business, marketing, finance, accounting, entrepreneurship and information & communication technology, whether through practical applications in the workplace or in postsecondary education.

Students learn and develop an understanding of communication technology in a business environment and builds a foundation of digital literacy skills necessary for success in a technologically driven society. 

Throughout our continuum of study, students have the opportunity to study the functions of accounting, marketing, the world of international business and the importance of ethics and social responsibility.  Our program builds a foundation for further studies in business and helps students develop the business knowledge and skills they will need in their everyday lives
