Global Business Management Program Elevates You as a Businessperson
Do you have an educational background in business but want to gain a unique blend of strategic
management and international concepts to prepare you to lead and manage effectively in the global
business environment? If so, you may want to consider attending Centennial College’s Global Business
This program, which is geared at mature learners, requires applicants to have completed a college
diploma or university degree in any discipline. In addition, they must also be able to provide proof of
English proficiency. Interested parties who possess partial post-secondary and relevant work experience
may also be considered. However, please note that a transcript and resume review is required.
If looking at the requirements for the program still leaves you wondering whether the Global Business
Management courses will suit you, consider that successful students have had the following traits and
skills: analytical with strong numeracy skills, highly organized with an ability to plan and prioritize, thrived
under pressure and ability to meet deadlines, strong interpersonal skills, solved problems in an innovative
way, comfortable working within a team environment; and open-minded with a willingness to learn new
All of these skills and traits are vital as graduates take on a business world that has gone borderless
thanks to international trade agreements and the Internet. Additionally, students of Global Business
Management obtain knowledge and practical skills that are transferable across several industries. For
example, they may pursue entry-level management/professional roles with international organizations,
non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and domestic businesses operating on a global scale.
But how exactly does the program help students to gain this global business perspective? First and
foremost, employed are teaching techniques such as guest speakers, external competitions, presentations
of research reports and industry visits. Secondly, because the Global Business Management program is
housed in Progress Campus — out of which many other Business School offerings are facilitated —
students have the opportunity to interact with their peers, network and gain insight into the professions
they may pursue. Thirdly, all Global Business Management courses are specific to the industry and
include: Global Business Research and Analysis, International Finance and Banking, Global Business
Seminars, Marketing, Ethics and Stakeholder Management, E-Business Strategy, Environmental
Stewardship and Sustainability, Global Business Strategy, International Development and more. Lastly,
students of Global Business Management are required to participate in a Capstone Project that challenges
them to apply what they’ve learned, by completing an integrated team project for a business client within
the Greater Toronto Area.
International students of the Global Business Management program who successfully complete the
undertaking may be eligible to apply for a work permit (up to three years) upon graduation.
