  • Objectives
    While the Business program addresses a number of the skill areas in the business field, such as finance, marketing, operations, and human resources, there is emphasis on the overall function of the organization and how its success is the result of the contribution of all areas and departments. Graduates of the program are able to apply communications, customer-service, information technology, teamwork, problem-solving, and task-management skills to support the business activities of an organization. As well, graduates will be exposed to the key roles of professional ethics, demeanor, and other standards and practices that contribute to an individual's success in business. This program is part of the mobile computing (laptop) initiative at Algonquin College, which will better prepare students for an increasingly technology-oriented workplace. The curriculum has been designed to take advantage of student-centred learning and the possibilities afforded by working in a technology-enhanced environment. Students in programs that are part of the mobile computing initiative will be expected to own a laptop that meets College specifications. Students will be exposed to all aspects of creating and operating a business. Subjects studied include accounting, management, marketing, entrepreneurship, business finance, and writing a comprehensive business plan. Students will use case work to support their learning, work on a variety of business-related projects, prepare business-related proposals, and complete a professional business plan that can serve as a blueprint of an actual business. Throughout the program emphasis is placed on the practical requirements of managing, establishing, or operating private and public organizations. For those who qualify and choose to, there will be an opportunity to participate in a summer work co-op. This 385-hour placement will give students real world work experience, an opportunity to network and make contacts in the industry as well as the time and space to internalize and reflect on how their theory-based courses relate to the real world. Students will return for the last academic term with experience and insight that will help them be successful in the final semester courses
