“As someone who first pursued a traditional 4-year degree elsewhere I can confidently say BCIT prepared me for industry in all the ways I was looking for at my previous institution. Applied, hands-on projects with real clients, learning from industry professionals, and a current pulse on the industry makes a difference.”
During my time at BCIT I started a successful photography business, became President of the sustainable entrepreneurship club, received the Hospitality Rising Star award … and I had a job offer for a full-time position four months before graduating. BCIT works!”
Ann Marie Hak, Convention & Events Sales Manager at Prestige Hotels & Resorts
