Business Fundamentals Help You Choose Your Career

By Jason Subscribe to RSS | December 14th 2011 | Views:

If you know that your interest lies in business but you're not sure in which direction you want to go, it is imperative that you obtain business fundamentals instead of in diving headfirst without any knowledge of the field. Centennial College offers a general Business program that provides students with an overview of the different areas of business so that by the time they graduate, they are confident and have discovered their niche.

Taking two years to complete, the undertaking is intended to provide individuals with education and training in the broad areas of business as preparation for the various entry-level jobs as customer service representatives, procurement assistants, human resources generalists, marketing assistants, service supervisors, junior business analysts, operations coordinators and insurance claims representatives. To graduate, students must have a minimum C grade average and an overall GPA of 2.0. If eligible, students may participate in articulated programs with selected universities, institutes and professional associations. These partnerships allow students to apply credits earned at Centennial College towards further study at other institutions. The Business program's partners are: Royal Roads University, Griffith University, Davenport University and University of New Brunswick.

Emphasis in the business fundamentals training is on the development of mathematical, computing, analytical and communication skills. Further focus is on a solid grounding in the contemporary concepts, theories and business practices, related to all the functional areas of the business enterprise. Students participate in teamwork, undertake case analyses and pursue directed research on an individual basis. This ensures that they graduate with a combination of academic knowledge and hands-on experience that they can apply to either the field or further study.

A team of professors with strong academic backgrounds and extensive business and management experience delivers all of the courses in the business fundamentals program. The first two semesters provide general study in courses such as Strategies for Business Success, Fundamentals of Business, Microcomputer Applications Software, Mathematics of Finance and more. Meanwhile, the last two semesters touch on many different areas of business. Theses areas include: International Business Concepts (gives students a broad overview of international trade, the macro-environment within which international business takes place, and the major strategic decisions facing international business managers); Principles of Marketing (provides an overview of contemporary marketing, emphasizing the management of the product/service, price, promotion and distribution areas of an organization within a changing environment); Retailing (provides a hands on study of the retail business and environment in Canada and abroad); and more.

In order to apply to this business fundamentals program, applicants must present at minimum an Ontario Secondary School Diploma or equivalent or be 19 years of age or older. In addition, they must also possess a compulsory English 12C or U or skills assessment, or equivalent and Math 11C, M or U, or 12C or U or skills assessment, or equivalent. Please note that possession of minimum admission requirements does not guarantee entry to this business fundamentals program.
