Program Information

School:Olds College
Field of Study:Business Administration and Management, General
Description:Develop your business skills to the next level with the Business Management diploma. After completion of the first year in the Business Management certificate, students have the option of returning to complete the second year of the Business Management diploma. Olds College provides business students with a unique learning opportunity and experience. It is one of the first Colleges in Canada to offer students such a progressive learning program.

Project-based learning is about taking theory to practice and learning about different subjects simultaneously. This is achieved through the completion of semester long, real-world projects where students work alongside of business owners and clients identifying business problems through research and the development of meaningful and effective solutions supported by evidence. This type of learning provides the learning environment that assists in effective knowledge transfer into the workplace and promotes “in demand”, 21st century skills. It also provides the students with invaluable hands-on learning experience and mentorship from business owners. “In project-based learning, the learning is the project.”
