How do I enroll in a business training program?

The admission procedure imposed may differ from one institution to another. If you want to train in business, it’s best to check with the school beforehand. If you have a baccalaureate and have chosen a major that is related to business, you can normally enter a business program from the first year of higher education.

You may also choose a track in a related field such as finance, marketing or law. After a short cycle of 2 or 3 years, you can then look to enter a business school. In this case and depending on the institution, you may have to take a competitive exam or submit an application.

What training to do in the trade?

Regardless of the institution where you plan to study business, you can choose the length of the course.

A short cycle

Do you want to be operational more quickly and have a diploma that allows you to enter a trade? Do you want to enter the working world as soon as possible? This is the right short cycle for you. You can choose to do your business training at either a public university or a specialized school.

In the first case, you can take a BTS or a BUT which are both obtained in 2 years. Or you can also opt for a professional license which is very professionalizing. However, choose a bachelor’s degree instead if you plan to continue your education.

If you prefer to do business training at a private institution, you can usually take a bachelor’s or BBA degree.

H3: A long cycle

If you have the ambition to reach jobs with greater responsibilities, choose to do a long cycle. You need at least 5 years of study to obtain your degree. If you do a business course in the public sector, you can obtain a master’s degree in international business. Instead, opt for a specialized school to take a master’s degree, an MSc or an MBA.

Why choose to do a work-study program in commerce?
