Business

“Studying business at UofGH enables students to hit the ground running in their professional careers. It’s about knowing how to approach problems because they have the theoretical knowledge, and knowing how to solve them because they have the applied skills. Employers’ expectations are high – that’s why our program emphasizes both.”

- Dr. George Bragues, Program Head, Business

In a field where theoretical knowledge is not enough, and where experience and practice is crucial, blending a university and college education seems the perfect answer.

Business at Toronto’s UofGH is about hitting the ground running.  It’s about knowing how to approach problems because you’ve got the theoretical knowledge, and knowing how to solve them because you’ve got the applied skills.  Employers’ expectations are high – that’s why we emphasize both.

You learn about the field as a whole so that you can specialize later.  From financing a small business to negotiating a deal, you learn all aspects of buying low and selling high. 

Seeing your knowledge take shape doesn’t begin when the learning ends – it happens simultaneously.  Manage an event, run a company through simulation, make presentations, and gain at least 100 hours of work in placement.

Whether you choose to become an entrepreneur, an investment advisor, a brand manager or an accountant, you’ll have the most relevant knowledge base and real life experiences to get you there.

What credentials will I graduate with?

Earn BOTH an Honours Bachelor of Business Administration AND a Diploma in Business Administration.

You gain both theoretical knowledge and applied skills – that’s why you graduate with two credentials.  Both an honours degree from the University of Guelph, and a diploma from Humber College Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning – two of Canada’s leading postsecondary institutions.  All in four years of full-time study.

Our curriculum is what makes the difference.  It innovatively combines theoretical and applied learning so that you are better prepared for whatever you may choose to do – whether that means beginning a career or pursuing graduate studies.
