PETERBOROUGH — Trent University has launched a new school to educate the next generation of business leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators.
The School of Business will prepare students for a future in the business by equipping them with tools for successful careers as entrepreneurs, accountants, human resources professionals and marketing experts.
“We are very pleased to be launching the School of Business at Trent, adding to the growing list of innovative and transformative things happening here at the University,” says Dr. Leo Groarke, president and vice-chancellor of Trent University, in a prepared release.
“Trent has always had a strong business program, and the new School of Business at both our Peterborough and Durham – GTA campuses will allow us to expand current program offerings and broaden our business networks locally, nationally and globally.”
The School of Business offers students choice when it comes to academic business programs. Trent’s popular Bachelor of Business Administration degree focuses on economics, management and entrepreneurship, with a full slate of accounting courses that prepares students for the CPA designation or as a launch pad to an M.B.A.
Business students can also choose to focus their degree on a broad range of career-focused specializations ranging from accounting and finance to ethics and sustainability and entrepreneurship, just to name a few.
In addition, the school also offers students the unique opportunity to combine business courses with virtually any arts or science degree.
The School of Business also offers two professional postgraduate certificates designed for students that have already completed an undergraduate degree in another discipline and would like to supplement it with a business focus in either human resource management or marketing and entrepreneurship.
“The School of Business at Trent University provides customized, high-calibre learning with the individual student front and centre,” says Dr. Kirk Collins, director of the School of Business at Trent University.
“The growth in the business program at Trent over the last few years has been impressive. The launch of the new School of Business is, in part due to demand, but it’s also part of the natural evolution of the program. We’re looking forward to growing the School even further.”
