Dean’s Welcome

William GillettWelcome to the Okanagan School of Business!

We are pleased that you have decided to join one of our programs and want you to know that we are committed to your success. Here in the School of Business you will have the opportunity to engage in a whole range of educational activities – not just in the classroom but in the local, provincial, national and international community.

The emphasis in our programs is on developing relevant business skills, knowledge and experience.  This is achieved with the efforts of our highly qualified and dedicated team of professors, instructors, staff and administrators. Our professors and instructors are second to none and bring to the classroom a sound balance of many years of business experience, academic qualifications, and a passion for sharing their knowledge and skill with their students.

By listening to feedback from employers and professional organizations we continuously update and improve our courses and programs. Our students are involved in projects and applied research that addresses the needs of business and community organizations.

The Okanagan School of Business has continued to expand its international partnerships so students have the opportunity to travel and study abroad as well as being able to meet with international students from other countries who are studying in the Okanagan. This international perspective ensures that our students obtain multicultural communication skills and a greater understanding of the global community.

While we now have over 1,600 students in our various programs, we keep our classes sizes small in order to maintain our individual and personal approach to students.

Thanks again for your interest in the Okanagan School of Business. We look forward to helping you find success in your business career.
