PEI high school students receive UPEI credit for business classes

June 8, 2017

The province of Prince Edward Island has signed an agreement with the University of Prince Edward Island that will allow students who complete three specific high school business courses with at least a grade of 70% to earn credit towards UPEI’s Business 101. “They will save having to do a full course, so that's work they won't have to do [at UPEI],” said Juergen Krause, UPEI's Dean of Business, who further expressed hope that the agreement would serve as a good recruitment tool for UPEI. CBC reports that Holland College has a similar agreement with the province for an accounting course and an economics course. CBC
