Upon completion of the diploma, students then apply to complete the BBA program.

Advanced Placement & Prior Learning (APPL)

The BBA Executive Pathway program is part of BCIT’s Human Capital Initiative which bridges the gap between workplace experience and post-secondary education in British Columbia. In this respect, the program supports the Institute’s provincial mandate to build economic capacity within the Province.

The BCIT SITE Centre of Excellence undertakes prior learning related research and assessment activities which result in advanced placement education options for British Columbians.
The Centre’ mission is to:
  1. Facilitate the recognition and transferability of education across a wide range of disciplines, the objective being to produce multi-disciplinary trained/skilled graduates who are valued by industry.

  2. Recognize and measure non-traditional training and workplace experience, thereby facilitating advanced placement and credits within the post-secondary education system in British Columbia.

The BCIT BBA gave me the necessary skills I needed to begin and excel in my career. I was employed immediately upon graduation and after a few years of working as a program lead/analyst, I was accepted into the Master of Public Policy program at SFU. I find myself leaning on best practices, such as teamwork, communication, and time management, all gained from my experience in the BBA program. Amber Butterworth, Project Lead / Program Analyst
