Welcome to BCIT School of Business and Media, where you will begin or continue an enriching educational journey.
First, I’d like to acknowledge that our BCIT campuses are located on the traditional and unceded territories of the Coast Salish Nations of Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh. We are honoured and fortunate to work, play and learn on these ancestral lands.
I want to congratulate all of you for joining BCIT. You have chosen one of the finest institutions in British Columbia to build a strong foundation to start or advance a fulfilling career. Here at BCIT, our goal is to empower you with practical skills in a team environment, and industry access necessary to succeed in your chosen field. And for our returning students, we welcome you back to another academic year.
At the School of Business and Media, we strongly believe in the power of collaboration and experiential learning. You will learn from respected faculty members with relevant industry experience to help navigate your educational journey. Throughout your time with us, you will have access to industry-level facilities, engage with business partners and participate in work opportunities to apply your skills and gain real-world experience to prepare you for success.
Embrace every opportunity that comes your way. Step out of your comfort zone, ask questions, and participate in networking events offered within our BCIT community. Your time here is not just about the coursework; it’s also about building connections and discovering your passions in life. The key to your success is your dedication, hard work, and perseverance.
We will support you along the way with various student resources, from peer tutoring to counselling and financial aid to career services. I encourage you to make the most of them. Be curious and always strive for excellence.
Once again, welcome to BCIT School of Business and Media! We are proud to have you as part of our community, and we look forward to seeing your achievements, growth and transformation over the years ahead.
