York, cultural centre offer free business certificate for Black community

October 16, 2020

York University’s Schulich School of Business and A Different Booklist Cultural Centre have partnered to create a free certificate program for Toronto’s Black community. The eight-week introduction to business webinar introduces students to marketing, operations management, and human resources, and includes Black guest speakers. The course was created to address some of the common barriers preventing Black people from entering the Schulich School of Business. “We hope that it will be one of several initiatives over a sustained period of time in terms of engagement with the Black community with the intent of having that community grow in strength, numbers [and] representation at the Schulich School of Business,” said Ashwin Joshi, director of York’s MBA program.
