College, university get down to businessThursday, March 27, 2014 by: SooToday.com Staff
A new partnership with Lake Superior State University (LSSU) will continue to ensure excellence in business offerings both in Canada and the United States.
The new partnership agreement that Sault College President Dr. Ron Common and Colin Kirkwood, Dean, Environment, Technology and Business at Sault College, signed today with Morrie Walworth, Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs and Dr. David Roland Finley, Dean of Business and Engineering at Lake Superior State University, enables students to pursue Sault College’s two-year Business program and transfer to LSSU’s Bachelor of Science in Business Administration Degree housed in LSSU’s highly-regarded Lukenda School of Business.
Students are eligible to earn minors in either Marketing or Human Resources Management.
In addition, students looking to improve their math preparation to complete the baccalaureate degree are also eligible to take advantage of a summer bridge program.
“This is a unique opportunity for students in the twin Saults and beyond to obtain rigorous business education in both Canada and the United States,” notes Dr. Finley. “The new articulation is among the best ways to expose individuals to the similarities and differences in the business culture, strategies and laws of our two nations so as to prepare learners to be leaders in global commerce.”
Within recent months, Sault College’s School of Business has expanded regional, provincial and now international partnerships in education and industry involving academic initiatives.
Other pathways offered through Sault College’s School of Business include business packages which allow a student to graduate with a Business diploma and a Public Relations and Event Management post-graduate certificate in three years.
Sault College also offers a Business Administration-Professional Golf Management program in partnership with Toronto’s Humber College to provide students with a Business Administration-Professional Golf Management diploma.
“Sault College is gaining a reputation for the quality of the business programs we offer,” notes Colin Kirkwood, Dean, Environment, Technology and Business at Sault College. “Part of this success is attributed to continuous improvement and enhancements to our programs. It’s exciting for us to partner with LSSU on such an innovative initiative. This partnership is attractive because it provides students with new programming pathways on an international level.”
