Pre-programs are post-secondary certificate programs that offer students the opportunity to take courses for career exploration or to qualify for further study. With small class sizes, dedicated teachers and built-in advising and supports, the pre-programs help students strengthen their academic skills and prepare for further course work.
The Pre-Business program provides opportunities for students to develop skills necessary for admission to programs in the Centre for Business at George Brown College or other post-secondary institutions. This unique program provides a challenging learning environment and exposure to a broad cross-section of business fields.
This program offers a strong introduction to business, marketing and general education plus foundation courses in math and English. On completion of the program, students will be well-prepared to develop their career plans, or to continue on to further education at the Centre for Business.
Note: Successful completion of this program is not a guarantee of admission to any other program. Graduates can apply for admission into semester 2 of certain Business programs.
Part Time Study Options Some of the courses in this program are offered during evenings and weekends through Continuing Education. See
Program Standards and Learning Outcomes
The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities has established Program Descriptions for college programs of instruction which do not operate under a specific provincial Program Standard. The Program Description typically describes the program purpose (a brief description of the program, potential employment opportunities and general admission requirements) and program goals (similar to program-level learning outcomes, which guide the curriculum).
