If you’re looking for a well-rounded education that will open as many doors as possible, our Business Administration program is just what you’re looking for.
If any of these sound like you – this program is for you!
This program is great because it covers the four major knowledge areas that anyone going into business or starting a business will need to know about: marketing, administration, human resources, and accounting.
This program consists of 42 weeks of lecture-style learning (28 weeks in Sydney as the program is taught seven hours per day vs four hours per day in Dartmouth.) You’ll cover courses in business communications, the Microsoft program suite, payroll, accounting, marketing, human resources and MORE. You’ll also complete a four week practicum that will give you the opportunity to put your skills to the test in the real world. You’ll make connections and gain skills that will look terrific on a resume.
Think about it. In just 46 weeks you’ll be ready to start your new career as an in-demand business administrative professional!
Marketing isn’t just as easy as placing an ad in the local paper. There are a lot of things to know and to consider. Do your potential customers read that paper? Who are your potential customers? What should the ad say? Do you have a logo that really reflects your product and speaks to the people that will buy it? Is the ad the right size? Will you recoup your expenses and grow your business?
That’s where we come in! Your marketing instruction will teach you how to understand the value of your product, determine who else will see value in that product and give you the knowledge and understanding to figure out how to connect the two together.
Human resources (HR) is the department or person within a business that is responsible for all things worker-related. It’s a lot, and a keen understanding of people, conflict management approaches, and even where to find and access legislation is key to doing it right. In any sized company having and keeping good people is truly the key to success. A solid background in HR (like the one you’ll get at CBBC Career College!), will give you the skills to make sure your team is solid and all working to lead the company toward success.
Our instructors will teach you financial accounting like how to track your expenses, invoices, and payroll to know if you’re profitable (and how to become profitable if you’re not!). We’ll also teach you how to manage your finances long-term to set your business up for success and keep financial woes at a minimum.
You’ll also be able to understand financial statements that companies’ use to show their financial performance and position to people outside the company, Including investors, creditors, suppliers, and customers.
Don’t be intimidated, this is math you can do and math you WILL do by the time you’re done!
Business administration is the glue that holds all of the above together. It’s the knowledge that allows you to balance all three and understand how they can work together to make your business successful. You need to know how marketing will increase demand and the need for personnel, and how that may boost profits but also put a strain on your finances (people cost money).
Think of it as the ability to step outside the day-to-day and view the business (yours or someone else’s) from outside. This is an extremely powerful thing to be able to do and a set of skills that will make you a powerful asset to any team.
So what are you waiting for?
Education that will allow you to succeed in various fields within the business sector is one of the smartest things that you can invest in. Start your own business, join one that needs your knowledge, or just sharpen skills that you already have to go further in a job you already hold. The possibilities are endless!
