The Business Administration Program at Red River College didn’t just help me gain an understanding of business, marketing and sales it helped me appreciate the hard work and dedication it takes to work in the industry. The program helped me learn to work collaboratively with others and how to overcome various challenges. I learned how to network and build professional relationships.
I found a number of the projects and exercises within the curriculum, as well as the Business Solutions Program, to be very influential as they had real-world applications. I believe the combination of academic learning and the practical application prepared me for my career. Additionally, I value the many opportunities I was given to develop my public speaking. I had the opportunity to participate in the Directions conference, the Business Solutions Program, and the First Impressions Recruitment event. These events were valuable as they allowed me to network, receive feedback and build confidence around other professionals.
I highly recommend the Business Administration Program! The advice that I would give to prospective students would be to take the academics seriously but also to diversify their experience through extracurricular opportunities and activities. This will help develop a wide range of skills towards a future career. Also, get know your instructors as they are not only knowledgeable but are also excellent resources for career development.
