What Students Say About Taking Business at Okanagan College

“The level of education I received at Okanagan College exceeded my expectations. I was amazed at the one-on-one mentorship I received from faculty and how they brought their real-world experiences into the classroom. While pursuing my BBA at Okanagan College, I was able to work on community projects with other students, compete against other schools across North America (and win too!)_, and be challenged every day in the classroom studying business. Having the ability to do these things has allowed me to succeed and be confident in the business world.”

The Business program is comprised of courses that are relevant and applicable to the workplace. The professors were not only experienced, but supportive in all aspects of my education.
