Western Community College offers unique diploma and certificate programs in various professional fields, including Health Care, Business, Accounting, Pharmacy and IT. Their career-based programs prepare the graduates for the job market as well as for further education.
This affiliation agreement paves a pathway for the students who wish to pursue their career in Accounting field. The graduates of the Advanced Accounting Diploma program at Western Community College get transfer credits towards the BBA program at Yorkville University, BC Campus. Students completing the diploma program at WCC who achieve the required academic standing may enroll into the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) with one of the four specialisations (Accounting, Supply Chain Management, Project Management, Energy Management) program and receive advanced standing.
This academic pathway will prove to be beneficial for both, domestic as well as international students, as it helps the students to build a strong foundation as well as economically tread towards the completion of their degree program.
Both the institutions will be conducting joint information sessions for the potential students to understand the pathway and seek career advice from the counsellors.
Dr. Daren Hancott, Campus Principal, YU, BC Campus and Gurpal Dhaliwal, President, Western Community College, Surrey and Abbotsford, shared that they felt excited about this new venture and were looking forward to welcome students who would take this academic pathway for their successful future.
