Which path is right for you?

I’m looking to transition to university on my own terms

Taking some time for yourself before launching into post-secondary education can be a smart strategy. For some, it’s a chance to travel, learn languages, or volunteer. For others, a “gap” year means saving money to pay for school, taking courses to boost transcripts, or exploring career options with real work experience.

Our Certificate in Business Management can be completed online and will give you credits for most of the courses in the first year of the full-time Bachelor of Commerce programs at Ryerson’s Ted Rogers School of Management.

Many (if not all) of the courses in the Certificate in Business Management can also be applied as transfer credits to BComm programs at universities across Canada.

Our certificates can also lead to part-time undergraduate study at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management. Contact us to find out more.

The rigour and discipline of this program, combined with the quality and calibre of teachers, made my experience at The Chang School exceptional. There was mutual learning and a shared exchange of ideas. It ignited a passion in me for lifelong learning, and motivated me to become a member of the Human Resources Professionals Association (HRPA) and complete numerous designations, and then to go on to complete my master’s degree and PhD.

Privacy is a critical issue that crosses industry lines. At the TDSB, we deal with a lot of student information and we are outsourcing a lot of resources to cloud-based solutions, so that led me to pursue this certificate program. The Chang School was the only local university or college offering a certificate that fit my interests, had instructors with practical knowledge from working in the field, and included a capstone course focused on applied learning.

In The Business of Cannabis (CZEN 420), I had the opportunity to create a business plan for my idea at the intersection of cannabis and tourism. This was the first time I was able to develop my business idea as part of a university-level course, have my plan evaluated, and make improvements based on expert feedback. Also, the guest speakers who shared their real-world experience working in the industry, and the site visit to an operating cannabis LP, added immense value to my learning experience.
