College spotlights business programs

There will be an information session today at 6 p.m. at the Vernon campus lecture theatre.

Local residents can find out more about Okanagan College’s business program.

There will be an information session today at 6 p.m. at the Vernon campus lecture theatre.

“We do tons of case work and group presentations in the business program. Our projects require detailed business planning, problem analysis and public speaking,” said Monika Jassi, a fourth-year student.

Jassi has also found that the small class sizes and high professor-student ratio helped her get a strong grasp on the course material.

“With only 15 students in a class, your teachers get to know you very well. You feel comfortable asking questions and getting one-on-one help whenever you need it,” she said.

Jassi’s education has prepared her for the next step, which is moving to Calgary after graduation and starting her marketing career.

Interested students are invited to attend the information session and speak with current students and professors.

They will have the opportunity to learn about job opportunities for business grads, understand how courses transfer from certificates to diplomas to degrees, and determine how to pay for their education.
