WHY GBC – Experiential Learning

We believe in learning by doing.

Since almost all of our career-focused programs offer an experiential learning component, you’ll be able to develop your skills alongside industry experts. While many of our experiential learning opportunities have become virtual, you’ll still gain invaluable workplace experience and exposure to your industry even before you graduate.

WHY GBC – Connected to employers

We know what employers value most.

How do we know? We asked them! Each program at George Brown is developed in consultation with industry leaders and employers who work with our faculty to make sure our curriculum stays current and relevant. These relationships allow us to prepare our students to meet the needs of their chosen industries.

WHY GBC – Online Delivery

Change can be a good thing.

The world has changed, and so has the way we deliver our programs. We’ve had to adapt just like our students have had to adapt to online and/or blended programs. It’s a good thing that adaptability is something employers are looking for! To help get you prepared for this change, we’ve created some tools to help.
