Business Management Specialization
The Business Management Specialization is a stream within our Business Fundamentals program.
Program and course content is developed based on input from entrepreneurs and industry experts. These industry experts help us determine the outcomes of the program to ensure graduates will be able to
- adapt business tools to their specific business needs
- analyze and select business financing options
- link customer engagement with business operations
- design strategies to grow and lead their business
Whether you are a new or existing entrepreneur, you will leave the program with the practical skills and tools necessary to start and manage a sustainable business in any product or service area, including trades, industry, retail, restaurant and more. Graduates will be able to recognize how the customer, community and employee impact business needs, which will help inform their business management strategies.
The Business Management Certificate qualifies you for Blue Seal Certification through Apprenticeship and Industry Training (AIT).
