Studying business at NAIT means a relevant education at a great value. You can earn both a diploma and a degree in just 4 years – and participate in the real-world training employers demand. Or consider upgrading your existing skills with individual courses through Open Studies or with a part-time business certificate.
The JR Shaw School of Business (JRSSB) offers smaller class sizes and personal attention. The majority of classes have 20 to 60 students. Instructors are focused on your interests and academic progress towards your desired goal. By studying at JRSSB, you also benefit from:
- curriculum that focuses on real-world business situations and authentic assessment;
- instructors with first-hand experience in their fields of specialization; and
- the latest business and educational technologies.
Open Studies is a convenient and flexible option that allows students to try out NAIT credit courses without having to enrol in a specific program. There are courses available for Open Studies in a variety of subject areas and disciplines.
Certificates provide an introduction to a subject area or an opportunity to upgrade skills. Certificate courses may be applied to diploma programs.
Diplomas in Human Resource Managment, Marketing, Finance, Management and Accounting provide students with the business theory and hands-on experience employers look for.
Baccalaureate and applied degrees let diploma graduates take their education to the next level. Students can start the Bachelor of Business Administration degree program in their first year or apply after completing a business diploma from NAIT or another recognized institution.
