Unique Features of our Program
The Business Administration program at GPRC is like no other small college business program in Alberta. Here are a few things that make us special:
Highly Qualified Staff
Each full time tenured instructor has (at a minimum) a Masters degree or a Professional Designation. The Department employs experts in many diverse areas such as communications, e-commerce, real estate appraising, auditing, and business research.
Financial Services Major
GPRC is one of the few business administration programs in Alberta which has a diploma major in Financial Services. Demand for graduates in this fast-growing field continues to expand.
"Hands on" learning
Many courses (particularly marketing and communications courses) have projects which involve working real life clients. For example, in past years, students have done marketing research for the local radio station, prepared tax returns for seniors, and raised money for local not-for-profit groups.
High Degree of Transferability for Accounting Designations
With proper planning, accounting students can apply more than 75% of their GPRC program towards professional accounting designations.
Once per year, Business Administration students are surveyed about the quality of their education. A departmental committee consisting of students and staff then meets to discuss the results of the survey. Meaningful changes are then implemented based upon recommendations from this committee.
