Centennial launches new business programs designed for Aboriginal students

October 11, 2011

Responding to the PSE barriers faced by Aboriginal students, Centennial College has developed 2 business programs that address the Aboriginal community's desire for training in business foundations combined with an understanding of Aboriginal needs. To help with entry into the 2-year Aboriginal Business Diploma program and the 3-year Business Administration--Accounting (Aboriginal Stream) program, both of which begin in January, Centennial is offering 40 bursaries of $1,000 each to applicants who meet the selection criteria. Program applicants must self-identify as Aboriginal in order to enrol. The programs were developed in collaboration with the Aboriginal Finance Officers Association and based on recommendations from the Canadian Council of Aboriginal Business.
