Diploma in Business Communications Co-op
The Diploma in Business Communications provides students with a wide range of skills and knowledge. Students will develop the technical skills they need for business, as well as critically important soft skills that are highly sought after by employers, such as effective communication and teamwork in the workplace. Through the work experience component, students will strengthen their resume with Canadian work experience.
Students who take the day program will follow the same course schedule from 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM during all parts of study. During the first 24 weeks of the program, students will also take 4 weeks of Job Placement Skills classes during the afternoon block 2: 45–4: 00 PM to prepare for their co-op.
Students taking the evening program will begin their program with 2 weeks of Job Placement Skills: Part 1 prior to taking their first course of the 6-week program. Between each 6 week course, students will take a 2 week break before starting their next course. At the end of the fourth course, students will complete 2 weeks of Job Placement Skills: Part 2 before beginning cooperative job placement.
This paid work experience placement is an integral part of the Co-op program. Students will apply theories learned in class in real-world work settings that are relevant to their field of study and aligned with the learning objectives of the program.
The program’s orientation and pre-placement classes will prepare you to find a suitable placement. During the work experience period, you will receive the support and guidance of a dedicated cooperative coordinator who will work with you and ensure that you receive all the support that is needed to successfully complete the program.
