Advance your career and improve your business skills with NIC’s new online business administration certificate.

Starting this September, the one-year certificate will be available in a fully online format to allow students greater access and flexibility. Students can complete all of their courses online, or face to face at the Comox Valley campus.

NIC instructor Raged Anwar is developing an online economics course to be offered this September.

The online format allows NIC to bring the certificate to many more students in rural and remote communities. Face-to-face classes will no longer be offered in Port Alberni or Campbell River, where enrolments in the certificate program dropped to fewer than seven students in the 2012-2013 academic year.

Online business courses will also be available to high school students across the region, through dual credit.

NIC’s certificate has been redeveloped to include video, podcasts, and a wide range of mixed media tools. It includes orientation and training to support the online learning process and introduce students to classmates and instructors. Students stay on track with individual and group assignments and connect with each other in online study groups.

Students follow the same curriculum as those within the traditional certificate, graduate with the same quality credentials, and gain a new flexibility to learn at a time and place that works for them.

For more information, on NIC’s Business Administration certificate, visit www.nic.bc.ca/business or call 1-800-715-0914 to speak with an adviser.
