The BCIT Global Trade and Transportation Management (formerly International Business Management) program provided courses that are relevant and opportunities to practice the skills that are fundamental for my current job. I liked that the program has Business Consulting Projects that work with local companies to come up with fresh ideas or solutions. This opportunity not only gives us hands-on experience, but also our input could potentially benefit the company over the long term. Win-win.
The stand-out moment I can remember was leading, planning, and executing a successful Industry Showcase event for students and industry professionals to network.
I think studying at BCIT has an advantage over universities because you will get practical education in smaller classes and instructors who have many years of direct hands-on experience in their industry. In addition, the cost of education at BCIT is more reasonable than compared to a university.
The faculty at BCIT are amazing! All my instructors made time to support me whenever I needed their help with assignments or projects. My program head also supported me and my classmates by sending us any immediate job postings from companies looking for candidates.
I chose the BCIT School of Business + Media because I wanted to learn about the global trade industry and wanted a practical and relevant education. I also heard that BCIT has an excellent success rate for students seeking jobs in their chosen field after graduation. I am happy to say it’s true!
If you want great practical and relevant education that will lead to exciting and challenging jobs in your chosen field, look no further than BCIT!
