Thorough Global Business Management Knowledge Opens
Doors to Various Industries
Do you dream of a career without borders? Have you considered entering business
management? Do you think you are analytical with strong numeracy skills; highly
organized with an ability to plan and prioritize; have strong interpersonal skills; an
innovative problem solver and decision maker; comfortable working within a team
environment; open-minded and have a willingness to learn new things? If so,
Centennial College in Toronto, Ontario may have a program that will help you to
launch an exciting career.
The Global Business Management program focuses on teaching students how to
ensure an organization’s ongoing success in a globalized environment by leading and
effectively managing in the global business environment. This aim is achieved
through a concrete understanding of leading-edge management strategies and
international business practices, which are taught in two year’s worth of courses.
All of the program’s courses feature a balance between lectures and
practical application. For example, guest speakers, presentation of
research reports and industry visits all contribute to the interactive
elements. One of the most beneficial practical aspects of the offering is a
Capstone Project. This element challenges students to apply what
they’ve learned to an integrated team project for a business client within
the GTA. Lastly, external competitions also provide students with an
opportunity to apply their knowledge outside of the classroom.
The program prides itself on balancing general business topics with
specialized global concepts. Among the specific Global Business
Management courses within this offering are: Accounting for Managerial
Decision Making, International Entrepreneurship, Global Logistics, Global
Business Research and Analysis, Ethics and Stakeholder Management,
International Marketing, Human Resources Strategy, International Sales
and Negotiation, Information Systems for Business Management,
Operations Management for Products and Services and more.
Unlike other Business Management Canada-based programs, this offering’s rounded
teaching approach doesn’t limit students in their career capacity. That’s because the
know-how and practical skills they gain can be applied to several industries. As
such, successful grads can, with confidence, seek entry-level
management/professional roles with international organizations, non-governmental
organizations (NGOs) and domestic businesses operating on a global scale.
Additionally, students from around the world who successfully complete Centennial’s
Global Business Management program may be eligible to apply for a work permit
(up to three years) upon graduation.
Because this program is geared towards mature learners, applicants must have
previously completed a three-year college diploma or university degree in any
discipline. The program will also consider applications from 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.
