Gain business fundamentals to kickstart a successful career path

You’ll take courses in customer service and business communication while improving your computer and math skills. You’ll also gain a solid foundation to be confident to enter the business world or to continue on to other academic business programs.

The Business Fundamentals program of Fanshawe College is designed to build fundamental business skills. This program is ideal for students who want to strengthen their foundational skills (math, writing, communication) before entering a two-year business diploma program; mature students who are preparing to re-enter the workforce; and international students. 

Because the second semester of the program is predominantly the common first semester shared by all two-year diploma programs in the Lawrence Kinlin School of Business, graduates may choose to transfer directly into the second semester of any business diploma program; alternatively, they may enter the workforce in various entry-level positions.

Available in a traditional in-class format with September, January and May admissions. This program is offered at more than one campus for your convenience.
