A fresh approach to business learning
Business skills such as planning and organization, handling finances or learning to sell an idea are crucial across every industry no matter your specialization. That’s why the University of Lethbridge offers open access business courses to students not currently in the Dhillon School of Business, and in some cases, community members as well.
If you're not currently a Dhillon School of Business student, talk to an advisor about fitting these courses into your program, or taking them as a community member.
