Business Administration (Global Studies Option)

International business is the cornerstone of a globalized business world. Students with training in international business practices and experience are able to work successfully in companies that engage in international trade. The opportunity to get that experience is available through the School of Business Diploma in Business Administration (Global Studies) which is offered in partnership with post-secondary institutions worldwide. BCIT has already established international student exchange agreements with institutions in Europe, Africa and Asia. This diploma provides a formal framework and a credential for students completing their business studies at our exchange partner schools or through participation in our International Summer Field Schools.

Courses
