INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS Visit the International Admissions 5 page for more information. Nadine Elliott (student, Bachelor of Applied Business Financial Services) "It was a really big support network for me to have the same classmates and to get to know them really well. I found it was much more practical in the college setting, working through the problems and having the time to do that with a professor, not necessarily with a T.A. (teacher's assistant), and really get that one-on-one experience with them." Read more about Nadine and her experience at George Brown College 6 I was able to take the Canadian Securities Course as part of my degree. Also, the program prepared me to write the Certified Financial Planner exam right after graduation, which saved me a lot of time. My education helped me to move up at TD very quickly, much faster than I would have without it. George Brown was the right choice for me. I would recommend the program to anyone. Taran Dhillon (2007 graduate, Bachelor of Applied Business) Financial Advisor, TD Bank I really enjoy this program, especially the applied components, because it s very hands-on and industry-oriented. My professors are the best ones you could ask for. Their solid industry background and experience bring additional value to the lectures, and they always engage us with the material. The support from professors and classmates adds to a friendly learning experience, and to achieving my short-term goal of becoming an applied business degree graduate. John Anastasakis (2008 graduate, Bachelor of Applied Business Financial Services) The Bachelor of Applied Business degree program at George Brown College has provided me with the skills and knowledge that are essential to succeed in the financial services industry. The co-op term at Outland Reforestation allowed me to apply the skills and knowledge, putting me on the right track to a successful career. My work with our Advancing Canadian Entrepreneurship (ACE) team has allowed me to make a meaningful difference to numerous social enterprises while developing an excellent network to ensure that when I graduate, I will hit the ground running. Dan MacGirr (student, Bachelor of Applied Business) VP of Marketing, SIFE George Brown One of the big draws of the program for me was that I could transfer credits from my program to four out of five levels of the Chartered General Accountant (CGA) designation. I am in the process of completing level five now. Doris Chen (2007 graduate, Bachelor of Applied Business)
