Business Administration Diploma

  • Graduates of the two-year Business Administration diploma program have the skills and knowledge required to be effective managers in a demanding and changing workplace. Our graduates have achieved an excellent reputation based on professional performance and positive attitude.

    The first year of the diploma program provides a solid foundation in general business knowledge with courses in accounting/finance, communications, marketing, computing, and organizational behaviour. The second year offers the opportunity to concentrate in a particular area of specialization.

    Six of the 10 second-year courses are electives, four business electives and two arts and/or science electives. Use these electives to concentrate your studies, focus on career goals, or broaden your education. Business electives must be courses offered by the School of Business at Capilano University (BADM, BCPT, BFIN, BMKT, or IBUS courses).  You can use the business electives to commence specialization in any of these management areas:

    • Accounting / Finance
    • General Management
    • International Business Studies  
    • Marketing  
    • Strategic HR Management  

    Arts and/or Science electives must be university transfer courses. Non-university transfer courses will be considered only if prior approval is granted from the vice-chair of the School of Business.

    Flexibility is a key aspect of all our program offerings. You have the option of completing your Business Administration diploma on a full-time or part-time basis, depending upon your needs. As your needs and those of employers change, we are able to respond with customized education packages that enable you to move into different areas or levels of specialization. This includes the option to obtain an Advanced Business Administration Diploma specializing in Accounting, Strategic or General Management, or Marketing or the option to obtain a Bachelor of Business Administration degree at Capilano University.

    A full-time course load provides a minimum of 20 instructional hours weekly (typically, one course equals four instructional hours). We suggest that at least 40 hours weekly of outside studies and preparation time will be required.
