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 – Location

Study in the heart of the city!

We’re definitely biased, but as the only college located in the heart of Toronto, we believe our campuses are in great locations in the city. Whether you’re in the neighbourhood of Casa Loma, downtown at St. James, or along the Waterfront, you’ll be surrounded by art, culture, diversity, industry leaders and more.

WHY GBC – Student Experience

Get to know your college community.

Your academics are important, but so is becoming an active part of the George Brown College community. We have a vibrant student and campus life filled with opportunities to make friends and have fun, but also to develop your leadership skills and to learn outside of the classroom.
