Technical Management and Services: Post-Baccalaureate Diploma

The Program

The Post Baccalaureate Diploma in Technical Management & Services is an excellent way to supplement your technical background with a strong foundation in business management. This program is designed to provide you with the business skills to move into managerial roles or to even start your own business.

What's My Career Potential?

Did you know that from 2015 to 2024, the provincial government expects there to be over 14,000 job openings in managerial roles in the applied science, info tech, engineering, and trades industries?
