Those who complete just the first year will be awarded a Business Foundations Certificate. This qualifies graduates for some entry-level positions, but they are encouraged to continue their education part-time or online if possible.
If you enjoy working with people and are a creative person with good communication skills, this program could be for you.
Employment prospects are good for graduates of this program. Grads generally work as management trainees in service-orientated businesses and retail outlets, sales trainees in a variety of industries, or in various human resource and general management positions. Some students start their own ventures or work in family businesses.
Before coming to TRU, I couldn’t even imagine how fast my life would change here. TRU gave
me all the opportunities I was looking for to unearth my true potential. I’ve met people from
various parts of the world, gained real-world work experience and most importantly, I have
learned more about myself. Being a part of the TRU community has been one of the most
meaningful and rewarding experiences in my life. One of the best things I did in my program
was my co-op. I put my learning into direct practice right away and that helped me secure a full
time position after I graduated.
