CCTB – part of the Global University Systems network – will teach an initial portfolio featuring diplomas in marketing, information systems, data analysis and cybersecurity and more.
“The portfolio is built around the skills employers are seeking in the workforce for the new digital world we live in”
“The portfolio is built around the skills employers are seeking in the workforce for the new digital world we live in,” Boris Poludo, head of Faculty at CCTB, said.
“Whether students are looking to explore the latest technology trends or develop knowledge in a new area, our programs will ensure they reach their aspirations.”
The first intake of students is set for May, while programs are prepared to be delivered remotely or through a blended format, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Future classes will be taught at CCTB West Pender Campus in in the heart of downtown Vancouver.
“Our institutions provide a variety of study paths and qualifications and we are always looking to expand to new sectors,” GUS Canada CEO Cyndi McLeod added.
“As part of an organisation brought together by a shared passion for accessible and relevant learning opportunities, CCTB is committed to promoting our brand of quality higher education.”
Earlier in March another GUS institution – GISMA Business School in Germany – announced a Future Leaders Scholarship totalling more than €1 million.
The initiative will offer students on its master of Business Administration (Global MBA) program a 50% fee waiver, and a 30% waiver for all other programs.
“With the Future Leaders Scholarship, we want to support people so that they can continue to pursue their goals even in difficult times,” said Stefan Stein, president of GISMA Business School.
“As an economy, we simply cannot afford to do without a whole generation of innovative young people. The world is reordering itself and we need responsible leaders who are being trained now to face the great challenges of the future.”
