Since its inception, the College has remained committed to the highest standards of education and has partnered with highly reputable organizations such as the Canadian Institute of Management (CIM), the Forum of International Trade Training (FITT), and the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) as well as established linkages with universities and colleges. Our programs range from two-month foundation certificates to two-year professional diplomas with transferable credits towards a Bachelor Degree at Acsenda School of Management, Canada West University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Montana State University – Billings and the International Hotel Management Institute – Lucerne.
All areas of academic study include access to practical work experience through one of our co-op or practicum programs.

International students enrolled in our co-op diploma programs can apply for a Canadian Work Permit.
