Ontario College Graduate Certificate in Global Business Management
The 2-year Global Business Management graduate certificate provides students with business expertise, concrete managerial skills and an appreciation of global cultures and traditions for the purpose of building a successful career on both a domestic and international scale.
Successful business professionals must also be skilled practitioners of strategy, marketing, communications and organizational behaviour. The Global Business Management program delivers powerful learning opportunities in each of these areas. In equal measure, business ethics and the tenants of corporate-social responsibility will be embraced. Students will be trained to enter industry as consummate moral corporate citizens.
The curriculum takes a balanced approach and mixes cutting-edge technical knowledge in fields like supply chain management and international finance and accounting with essential soft skills including developing effective teams, presentation best practices and leadership skills within a global context.
The program culminates in Semester Four with a real-life applied project. Working in teams, students are assigned as consultants to an industry partner with an identified problem or opportunity in need of resolution. Students will apply the program's complete body of knowledge in order to achieve a successful outcome for their client.
