Transcript of "Global business management program is designed for mature learners"

  1. 1. Global Business Management Program Is Designed For Mature Learners Did you know that if you have completed a post-secondary program, you may be entitled to take a shorter program should you want to move up in your career or switch career paths all together? If this is the case and you are interested in the global business environment, you may want to consider Centennial College’s offering. The Global Business Management programs takes two years to complete and is open to applicants who already possess a three-year college diploma or university degree in any discipline or those who have a two-year college diploma or a partial university degree (75 per cent complete), and who have a minimum of two years work experience relevant to the program. Mature students will find this offering beneficial as it uses Business Management Canada topics as a base and then adds international concepts that prepare them for entry-level management and professional roles with international organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and domestic businesses operating on a global scale. The knowledge students obtain is even transferable across several industries and gives them the ability to lead and manage effectively in the global business environment. Classes contain a blend of strategic management, and international concepts. Among specific Global Business Management courses are: Global Business Strategy (strategy formulation is emphasized via three steps: a strong conceptual foundation delineating the steps involved in successful international business planning; developing an analytical decision-making framework; and finally getting a “hands on” experience of making decisions in cross functional teams); International Banking and Finance (gives students an overview of international money markets, the elements of risk management, the role of financial institutions and a case study approach to why companies merge or interest rates fluctuate and why do stock markets fluctuate); Comparative Geopolitical Systems (examines world-systems and how global and regional systems have changed and been changed by relationships between people and places while providing students with an organized study of historical, geographical, social and cultural factors in world regions. It encourages the student to develop from this study, objective criteria for working constructively with diversity); and more. Students are encouraged to learn concepts through engaging guest speakers, partaking in external competitions, presenting research reports and industry visits and a final-semester Capstone Project. The Capstone Project is a hands-on application that requires students to apply what they’ve learned by completing an integrated team project for a business client within the Greater Toronto Area. Because there are strong employment prospects for graduates, international students who successfully complete Centennial’s Global Business Management program may be eligible to apply for a work permit (up to three years) upon graduation.
