Enter The Business World Faster Than Ever
Professionals looking to advance their careers in Canada often face the difficult challenge of gaining the required credentials and education necessary for such a jump. With the competitiveness of the current job market, additional education can be the difference between a major promotion and not.
Balancing school with professional and personal obligations can be difficult. York University’s School of Continuing Studies has stepped up to ease this concern, launching a new program specifically designed to help professionals gain the business acumen needed in as little as nine months through an innovative and flexible online learning platform. This is faster than any other comparable online business program. In less than a year you can be qualified for new and exciting career opportunities.
Lesley Moulas, a vice-president at Greenwhich Associates, is taking her business Certificate online. For her, the program at York was about expanding her theoretical knowledge base to acquire the skills necessary to succeed.
“I really enjoyed the case analysis. There were a lot of case studies, and it felt — as much we were applying our understanding of theory — it felt very practical, because we were looking at real, living organizations and I felt at often times that I was applying my practical knowledge and what I’ve learned through my years of experience, as well.”
For Moulas, she realizes that in a more competitive landscape than ever before, taking the initiative to gain valuable skills can set you apart.
“It’s going to help close a gap for me, that I’ve always felt I’ve had, lacking formal business education. I’ve done professional certifications in my industry, but to me, I still felt like I had a bit of a gap. Closing this gap, I feel ultimately will help build my confidence, or continue to build my confidence,” she said. “In addition to that, as I continue to build my career, it is going to show evidence that I am passionate about learning, and a motivated leader and that continuous improvement and development is important to me.”
Because the entire program can be completed online, it’s truly designed with professionals in mind. It’s been created with the intention to allow students to balance a full-time career, professional and personal obligations all while obtaining a world-class education.
