Virtual Business Case Competition
The BCIT Virtual Business Case Competition is an online competition available to grade 11 – 12 students. Students will have approximately one month to learn how to write a case and compete individually against peers from within their own grades at their own schools. All materials, judges, and support teams will be provided by BCIT. Students who choose to partake in this optional competition will have a chance to compete for prizes.
Prepare for Your Future – Panel
The Prepare for Your Future Panel is a one-day event set to take place at BCIT in January. The Panel is designed for grade 10-12 high school students who are aspiring to pursue a business or media related field. Panelists will include BCIT Business + Media student leaders and guest speakers from industry, who will build high school students’ confidence in their transitions from high school to post-secondary education.
The Explorer Program gives students an opportunity to take a shortened version of a BCIT Business + Media program. Taking place one day a week for five weeks, students will experience a sample course of their choosing. Upon completion, students will be offered a spot in the full-time version of their course in the following September. The 2021 Explorer Program will be offered online.
Career Exploration Program
The Career Exploration Program (CEP), similar to the Explorer Program, is a paid program available to students over the summer. Over the course of two weeks, students can explore career suitability and options while gaining multimedia experience to enhance employment opportunities and develop their communication skills for personal and professional growth. Learn more about the CES Program.
Spend a Day Program
The Spend a Day Program is an on-going program that allows students spend a day shadowing a BCIT student. Students will experience the campus, sit in on lectures and labs, and get your questions answered by real BCIT students. Learn more about the Spend a Day Program.
