Business (Accountancy, Financial Services, Human Resources, Insurance, Management, Marketing)

Diploma

Program Overview

Our two-year Business diploma program is offered full-time at Saskatchewan Polytechnic in Moose Jaw. The first year provides a well-rounded foundation in core business concepts, including accounting, finance, management, computers, marketing, human resources, insurance and more. The second year allows you to specialize in one of the following areas of expertise. Note that in Year 1 - Semester 2, students must take one of either ACCT 125 or ACCT 225.

Accountancy

Accounting is about more than numbers, it's about conducting audits, doing business analyses and presenting financial information so managers and investors can make informed decisions. Accounting is often called the language of business. If you want to be one of the people at the table when critical business decisions are being made, Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Business accountancy specialty will appeal to you.

You'll study cost accounting, auditing, taxation, finance, quantitative methods and more. You'll apply theory to real-world situations in business simulations, case studies and group projects. You'll use industry standard software in your courses. Optional co-operative education work terms are a great way to gain valuable experience and make industry connections - while earning money.

You can apply to use your diploma for credit in a degree program at the University of Regina's Paul Hill School of Business or online degree programs at University Canada West and Husson University/University of Fredericton.

Use your credits to apply for advanced standing toward professional designations in accounting or auditing. The Canadian accounting profession is undergoing a national unification initiative, so, with the right preparation, you'll be first in line for the new unified Chartered Professional Accountant (CPA) designation. For more information, visit cpacanada.ca.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic accountancy specialists are in demand. Many grads have jobs lined up before they graduate. You'll find opportunities in every sector: commercial, industrial, institutional, government and non-profit. You could work for an accounting firm or in the accounting department of a private company or government department.

Financial Services

If you're interested in a career that combines working with money and working with people, Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Business financial services specialty diploma is a great choice. Financial services is more than banking - it's loans, mortgages, investment products, financial planning, money management, insurance, risk management and more. With so many services and an aging workforce, it's also an industry with exceptional potential for career growth.

You'll develop specialized knowledge and skills in agricultural lending and residential mortgages, bank systems and practices, financial products and services, loans and credit, personal financial planning, tax fundamentals and more.

Practical exercises and hands-on activities give you a chance to apply what you learn. A unique seminar course in your final semester gives you a chance to integrate theory and practice in a simulated retail banking environment. It's a chance to polish your skills before entering the workforce.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic works with the Canadian Securities Institute (CSI) to ensure students are meeting actual marketplace needs. As part of your course requirements, you must register with the CSI and purchase specified textbooks that will be used for Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Canadian Securities Course preparation classes. Saskatchewan Polytechnic will guide you through your CSI registration process and textbook purchase.

Graduating with a financial services specialty diploma qualifies you to apply for advanced standing into degree programs at the University of Regina's Paul Hill School of Business and Athabasca University or online degree programs at University Canada West and Husson University/University of Fredericton.

Graduates are prepared to work as management trainees in the financial market (financial institutions). These include chartered banks, investment firms, credit unions, trust companies and insurance companies.

Human Resources

Human resources offers the best of two career paths: working with people and working in a business environment. On a day-to-day basis, you might be dealing with benefits, payroll, labour relations or recruitment issues. But you'll also be involved in the bigger picture - designing competitive employee packages, supporting a productive work environment and creating a healthy organizational culture. Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Business human resources specialty provides the broad-based training you need to work in any sector.

This specialty is available entirely through distance education. You'll focus on in-depth training in the application of business management practices to employment situations, collective bargaining and interest-based negotiations, compensation and benefits, labour and employee relations, organizational effectiveness and behavior, recruitment and selection, training and development, and workplace wellness.

In addition to lecture material, you'll participate in class assignments, role-playing, demonstrations and simulations. The emphasis on learning by doing will help you translate theory into real-life skills.

As a human resources specialty student you have the option to spend a year taking three consecutive four-month paid co-operative education work terms. Work terms not only let you develop your skills on the job, they provide an excellent introduction to potential employers.

You can use your Business human resources specialty diploma for credit in degree programs at the University of Regina's Paul Hill School of Business and Athabasca University or online degree programs at University Canada West and Husson University/University of Fredericton.

A Business human resources specialty gives you a lot of choices. You could work in the HR department of a large multinational company, government agency or health organization. You could be part of a smaller team or even the only specialist in a small business. Where you work impacts what you do. In a smaller organization, you might be a generalist doing a wide variety of HR tasks. In a larger organization, you could be an HR manager, recruiter, labour relations assistant, compensation analyst, training co-ordinator or benefits administrator.

Insurance

Insurance is big business in Canada. People, businesses and organizations rely on insurance professionals to help manage risk and protect against loss. With more than 25 percent of the current workforce* expected to retire in the next few years, now is a great time to start a career in insurance.

Insurance brokers, appraisers, claims investigators and marketing representatives work closely with people and businesses. Insurance adjusters, underwriters, loss control specialists, risk managers and actuaries work behind the scenes balancing the numbers.

* Insurance Institute of Canada

Saskatchewan Polytechnic is one of only nine colleges and universities in Canada to offer a dedicated insurance program, and the only one in Saskatchewan. The specialty is designed with extensive input from Saskatchewan's insurance industry and the Insurance Institute of Canada.

In this second year specialty you'll take courses in automobile insurance, commercial law, insurance against liability, insurance broker/agent skills, insurance on property, loss adjusting, relationship selling, and underwriting.

When you graduate, you'll have written five of the 10 Insurance Institute of Canada exams necessary to earn your Chartered Insurance Professional (CIP) designation. You can also apply to use your diploma for a head start on an online degree in Business from Husson University/University of Fredericton.

There are more job openings than insurance specialty grads. You'll find your skills in demand in communities around the province. Work as an insurance broker/agent in a large firm or as an independent broker. Build a career as a claims adjuster, underwriter or appraiser for government or private insurance agencies.

Management

If you like being part of decision-making processes, and are interested in organizational culture and interpersonal dynamics, the Business management specialty will appeal to you. Business management is many things - efficient management of people, effective organization of resources, and strategic planning for growth. You could work in an administrative role in a wide range of public and privately owned enterprises, crown corporations and government organizations, or start your own business.

You'll develop knowledge and skills in management, leadership and decision making, interpersonal and organizational behavior, finance and managerial accounting, international business and e-business, entrepreneurship, and retail strategy development and relationship selling.

You can take a year to participate in the optional three consecutive four-month paid co-operative education work terms between semesters three and four. It's a chance to try different job areas in administration and discover the best fit for your career goals.

Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Business management specialty diploma is accredited by the Canadian Institute of Management (CIM). When you graduate, you'll have met the educational requirements for the Certified in Management (CIM) professional designation. After two years of managerial (or supervisory) work experience, you can apply for the right to put the highly respected "CIM" designation after your name.

When you graduate you will have the knowledge and practical skills for a wide variety of administrative and supervisory jobs in many types of organizations. Or you can apply what you have learned to grow your own business.

Marketing

A career in marketing can take you in many directions - branding, research, public relations, retail, advertising sales or event planning. And you can find jobs in these areas in almost every sector, from health agencies to natural resource companies to non-profit organizations.

Our dynamic curriculum includes social media, computer-based simulations, industry-standard Adobe software, crisis management and other emerging trends.

You can develop on-the-job skills, introduce yourself to different employers and test-drive different types of jobs over the year during three consecutive four-month paid co-operative education work terms.

You'll gain knowledge and skills in advertising, branding and creative design, digital and social media, market research and strategic marketing, project management and relationship selling, public relations, and retail strategy and development.

You'll get a hands-on education using social media, writing copy, doing mock presentations, conducting research, creating computer-based simulations, participating in group projects and more. You'll also get involved in the community; Saskatchewan Polytechnic's Business marketing specialty diploma gives you an opportunity to work on real projects for community-based organizations.

You can apply to use your Business marketing specialty diploma for credit in degree programs at the University of Regina's Paul Hill School of Business and Athabasca University or online degree programs at University Canada West and Husson University/University of Fredericton.

Business marketing specialty grads work as marketing coordinators, marketing assistants, advertising sales representatives, event planners, publicists, social media specialists, account managers, brand managers, market researchers and more. Use your skills in your own business, work for an advertising agency or design firm, or look for opportunities in larger organizations and government agencies.

Admission Method

First Qualified/First Admitted

The First Qualified/First Admitted (FQFA) process is used for the majority of Saskatchewan Polytechnic programs. When we determine that you meet the program's admission requirements, you will be offered admission based on the date you fully qualify for the program. The earlier you provide the appropriate documents and information that qualify you for admission to the next intake, the earlier you might begin your studies. Your application, once qualified, is always considered for the next intake. 

Applicants to programs with multiple intakes in an academic year remain in the application pool until the last intake for that academic year has begun. Programs using the FQFA process receive applications year round and maintain an application pool for each academic year. Qualified applicants who are not offered a seat must reapply for the next academic year. 

Sponsored programs or programs targeted to specific groups do not accept applications year round or maintain an application pool.

See Admission Processes for more information about this method of admission.
